Saskatchewan Says Crops in Good Condition Amid Warm, Wet Weather

July 19, 2012

Saskatchewan crops, including wheat and hay, were in “good condition” as warm weather speeds development and thunderstorms provide moisture, the Canadian province's Ministry of Agriculture said in an e-mailed report today.

About 18 percent of cropland had surplus soil moisture and 74 percent was adequate, the ministry said. About 65 percent of the province’s hay is cut, up from 59 percent a year earlier, according to the report.
