Seeding still far from complete in Saskatchewan

Across the province, seeding is 38 per cent complete.

Seeding — Saskatchewan's biggest industrial project– is still well behind the five-year average.

Across the province, seeding is 38 per cent complete, according to the Saskatchewan Ministry of Agriculture crop report. The five-year average is 53 per cent.

If weather conditions stay nice the four-week seeding event may be completed by June 15.

Rains again delayed some seeding in the province last week.

In the southeast region, which includes Moose Jaw, only 18 per cent of seeding is done, down from 51 per cent on average.

At 43 per cent complete the southwest is usually two-thirds done.

One-fifth of cropland topsoil moisture in the southeast is surplus; 79 per cent is adequate with two per cent short.

In the southwest topsoil moisture s 81 per cent adequate and 14 per cent short.

Half of field peas and lentil acres are seeded with 43 per cent of spring wheat. Oats and canola are 19 per cent in with 10 per cent of flax seeded.
