The southeastern region of the province, which includes the Prince Albert area, now has six per cent of its land seeded.
Saskatchewan Agriculture’s weekly crop report said that seven per cent of the land across the province is now seeded, with the southwestern region far ahead with 20 per cent of the crop in the ground.
The five-year (2009-2013) average for mid-May is nine per cent seeded but relatively dry weather has allowed many producers to work, while others will begin this weekend.
Elsewhere across the province, the west-central and northwestern regions are at five per cent, the east-central region is at two per cent and the northeastern region is at less than one per cent.
Cropland topsoil moisture in the province is rated as 20 per cent surplus, 79 per cent adequate and one per cent short while hay land and pasture topsoil moisture is rated as 12 per cent surplus, 83 per cent adequate and five per cent short.
