The latest crop report says Saskatchewan farmers have seeded 91 percent of the crop, up from 70 percent last week.
Seeding is well ahead of the five year average of 81 percent.
Seeding ranges from 95 percent in the southwest to 86 percent in the east central region.
Rainfall ranged from trace amounts to 72 millimeters in the Humboldt area, helping to temporarily alleviate dry field conditions.
Overall, crops are poor to good, but germination has been patchy and delayed by dry fields.
The majority of crop damage this past week was due to strong winds, lack of moisture and insects like flea beetles and cutworms in canola.
SaskPower says there were 15 incidents of farm machinery contacting electrical equipment this past week, bringing this month’s total to 143.
Farmers are cautioned to be aware of their surroundings at all times and plan ahead.
