Warm and favourable weather has allowed some producers to begin seeding, according to Saskatchewan Agriculture's Weekly Crop Report.


Peas and lentils are being seeded in some southern areas; however, the majority of producers will be waiting a few more weeks for the soil to dry up before they can begin seeding. The east-central and southeastern regions have received the greatest amount of precipitation in the past week, up to 41 mm in some areas.


With a few exceptions, there is adequate topsoil moisture in the majority of crops districts. Crop reporters in some east-central areas are indicating a surplus of moisture and some areas in the west-central and northwest regions are short of topsoil moisture on cropland, hay land and pasture. Pasture conditions in most crop districts are good to excellent, and there is an adequate supply of water for livestock.
Farmers are busy seeding, calving and controlling weeds.
