There’s a wide range of crop conditions across southern Saskatchewan.
The regional crop specialist in Weyburn, Sherri Roberts, says recent rain improved crops across much of the southeast part of Saskatchewan.
She says most crops are in good shape but some farmers are concerned about moisture related diseases like root rot.
By contrast, the crop specialist in Swift Current, Shannon Chant, says crops are shorter than normal and canola is flowering early due to extreme dryness this year.
She says showers have been scattered across the southwest but yields will likely be affected by the dry weather earlier this year.
