Agriculture minister Lyle Stewart is concerned about the lack of precipitation this winter.
2017 was the driest year since 1885 in Regina, and Stewart is hoping there is good moisture for spring seeding.
“Well it’s for sure to early panic, but i think we’re all concerned,” Stewart said.
“It was a very dry summer and we didn’t get any moisture to speak of in the fall, there’s also been virtually no snow in southern Saskatchewan this winter,” said Stewart.
Stewart also said southern Saskatchewan is looking dry going into the 2018 growing season and crops will depend on some snow as well as spring and summer rains.
