The provincial seeding pace in Sask. compares with the five-year average for this time of year of 33 percent complete
WINNIPEG — Good seeding progress was reported across much of Saskatchewan during the week ended May 15, with 30 percent of the 2017 crop now planted, according to the latest weekly report from Saskatchewan Agriculture.
The provincial seeding pace compares with the five-year average for this time of year of 33 percent complete.
Seeding is furthest along in the southwest region of the province, at 60 percent. However, activity across Saskatchewan varies widely, and growers in the northeast are only four percent done. The northwest was not doing much better, at only eight percent seeded.
