Saskatchewan crops in good shape

Warm weather in the past week has helped to advance both crop development and haying. according to Saskatchewan Agriculture’s weekly crop report. Livestock producers have 17 per cent of the 2013 hay crop cut and eight per cent baled or put into silage, while 90 per cent of the provincial hay crop is rated as good to excellent in quality. The majority of fall cereals are in the heading to dough stages of crop development, while most spring cereals are in the jointed to heading stages. The majority of pulse crops are in the vegetative to flowering stages and flax crops are mostly in the seedling to flowering crop stages. Most canola and mustard crops are in the rosette to flowering stages of development.
