Saskatchewan

Despite below-average pre-cipitation this summer, wetland conditions remain good to excellent because of lower-than-usual evaporation rates resulting from cool temperatures and a lack of high winds. 

Areas that have received isolated, heavy rains still have full temporary wetlands and sheet water in the fields.  Throughout the province, permanent and semi-permanent basins are in excellent condition and are providing prime habitat for brood-rearing ducks.  Production appears to be excellent, and field staff are reporting outstanding brood numbers.

Haying operations are now finishing up, which is behind the average schedule.  Crops are also slightly behind schedule, but harvest should begin in the coming weeks.
