CROP REPORT FOR THE PERIOD JUNE 24 TO 30, 2014

Released on July 3, 2014

According to Saskatchewan Agriculture’s weekly Crop Report, crop development continues to be delayed due to cool and wet weather conditions.  Forty-nine per cent of the fall cereals, 61 per cent of the spring cereals, 66 per cent of the oilseeds and 55 per cent of the pulse crops are behind their normal developmental stages.
 
Significant amounts of rain fell over much of the province this weekend with some southeastern and east-central areas receiving well over six inches of rain in a few days.  Crops in the hardest hit areas have been significantly impacted by localized flooding and saturated field conditions.

Provincial topsoil moisture conditions on cropland are rated as 48 per cent surplus and 52 per cent adequate.  Hay land and pasture moisture conditions are rated as 36 per cent surplus, 62 per cent adequate and two per cent short.  Warm and dry weather is needed to help alleviate excess moisture.

The majority of crops outside the areas affected by flooding are in fair to excellent condition.  Excess moisture, localized flooding, wind and diseases such as root rot and leaf spots have caused the majority of crop damage this week.

Saskatchewan livestock producers have less than one per cent of the 2014 hay crop cut and 98 per cent is rated as fair to excellent in quality.  Much of the hay is behind its normal developmental stages for this time of year.

Farmers are busy controlling weeds and beginning haying operations.
