Spring Seeding Off to a Slow Start
A cool and late spring has delayed field work across the province. However, seeding has started in the southern areas. In most other areas, harrowing and pre-seeding herbicide and fertilizer applications are taking place. Many producers will be seeding within the week. Field conditions vary greatly across the province. The southern regions are dry and the northern and eastern regions are dealing with high field moisture.Spring runoff in the south was below normal in many areas, leaving some livestock producers looking at how to sustain water supplies throughout the upcoming grazing season.
