Canadian Crop Conditions

Flooding continues to cause major crop damage across the province of Saskatchewan, according to Saskatchewan Agriculture's weekly Crop Report.

The problem is particularly bad in the northeast where rain on already saturated fields resulted in a range of precipitation of up to 82 mm.

Cropland topsoil moisture here continues to increase and is rated as 92 per cent surplus, according to the report.

More than half of the winter cereals in the region are showing as being behind in normal development, with more than three quarters of spring cereals and oilseeds likewise.

Crops rated as poor/very poor: 26% of winter wheat; 28% of spring wheat; 32% of barley: 35% of canola.
