The Provincial crop report was released Thursday morning, showing recent weather events are harming crops across the province.
Rainfall varied during the week, from 72 millimetres in Rhein to just trace amounts throughout the province.
Provincial crops extension specialist Brent Flaten says crop development is well underway.
“Crops are 75% plus at their normal stages for the development of this year, however the crop conditions are extremely variable, shall we say, anywhere’s from fair to excellent, and some poor.”
81% of fall cereals, as well as 75% of oil seeds, 79% pulse crops and 77% spring cereals are at their normal stages of growth.
However, provincial crops extension specialist Brent Flaten says crop damage is becoming an issue across the province.
“Due to storng winds, flooding, hail, as well as (a shortage) of moisture, so some people are getting too much rain, some people aren’t getting enough, and some people are getting the hard rain in form of hail.”
Dry top soil moisture conditions continue to be a problem in the south west and west central portions of the province, while the eastern portion of Saskatchewan struggles with too much moisture.
According to the provincial crop report, farmers and producers are busy applying fungicides and haying in between rain events.
