Farmers waiting for drier land
Farmers continue to play the waiting game, this week, in hopes to see drier pastures.
It has been next to impossible for them to begin spring seeding due to fields being just too wet.
Farmworld's Tex Prete says farmers in Melfort and the Kinistino area are being patient.
"I would say, for this area, they're a bit behind. I think that most years, we'd be started already, putting some seeds in the ground, and that hasn't started to happen yet. So if we get dry weather here now, for the rest of the week, I would think by the end of the week they'll be a few people starting to move in the fields."
Ron Warner at Crop Production Services says he has too has been hearing very little activity around Prince Albert.
He says there are lots of guys wanting to get going, but as far as he knowszero per cent in the ground.
