While parts of west-central and southwest Saskatchewan remain bone dry, the province is reporting most crops are coming along normally.
The province released its weekly crop report Thursday covering the period of June 12-18.
Seventy-five per cent of spring cereal crops were at the right stage of development for the time of year, along with 70 per cent of oilseeds.
The report stated many areas in the central part of the province saw large amounts of rain, helping to get some moisture into the ground after what had been a dry spring.
Many farmers also benefited from lower winds, allowing them to catch up on missed opportunities to spray for weeds.
About three-quarters of the province was reported to have either surplus or adequate topsoil moisture.
However, the southwest corner of the province remained stubbornly dry, with areas around Gull Lake and Shaunavon still reporting less than 25 millimetres of rain since April 1.
The dry conditions in the southwest were expected to affect crop yields and reduce the number of animals ranchers would be able to put out on their pastures.
