After months of well below moisture levels, the rains have come to replenish the fields.
"The last two weeks," shared Daphne Cruise, a crop extension specialist with Agriculture Canada, "all the rainfall, especially in the southeast has definitely alleviated some of these dry conditions and a lot of those concerns when it comes to the crops, the hay, and the pasture."
"The southeast went from too dry to too wet in some of those areas, especially last week and again this week."
Carnduff received 48 mm, Stoughton reported 25 mm, Weyburn had 45 mm, and Odessa received 51 mm.
"It has helped tremendously with the emerging crop and getting this crop off and going again."
"Because of the dry conditions up until about two weeks ago, the crop was a little bit behind. So 32% of spring cereals, 35% of the oilseeds, and 28% of the pulse crops are behind normal development for this time of year. But I suspect with this moisture, they can play catch up in short order."
However, the weather can also turn negative quite quickly.
"A lot of these storms that pop up, hail is always a concern. There has been some of that throughout the province and in the southeast. It's something in the back of producers' minds."
She added to keep a close eye on emerging crops to watch out for any damage or insects.
"The high winds in the last little while have put a little bit of damper on in crop weed control. With the recent moisture, it's not only brought on the crops, but also the weeds."
Producers will have to wait for clear and calmer skies to get back into the fields to spray.
