Farmers in and around the southeast area are keeping a close eye on the skies these days as they hope for some rain to fall.
"I'm working for an old friend seeding," explains Duncan Brown, who farms around Carylye, "and he has 10,000 acres to seed. We're at about the 8,000 mark right now so we're about 80% done. There are producers in the area that are done."
"We've gone 16 days straight now without a break. It's been a good run but we would gladly shut down for a few days because it was raining."
He added that he is currently seeding canola on flax stubble which is typically drier than other stubble.
"It's so dry that's I'm afraid we're not going to get good germination unless it rains on it."
"If it would just rain, we would be happy."
Brown and other producers might be in for some relief as the forecast is calling for rain tonight. For the full five day forecast, click here.
