    Appears planting is ahead of schedule in the Provinces. Unlike last year, moisture is needed.

    Maybe in the prairies but certainly not in Ontario. A lot of winter wheat didn't make and got plowed under and seeded with corn. Everything here is weeks behind and still a lot of fields in fallow

    Extreme drought central southern SK... Potholes are going to be hard to come by this fall if we do not get some rain soon. If we had some real good down pours that would change the pothole/slew situation.

    Well, June has been a wet month for the prairie provinces. General rainfall amounts across all three provinces has been in the 4 to 6" range save for the Southern Alberta prairies which had been 2-3".

    This should help maintain and restore rearing and staging waters and keep the hay cutters out of the hay fields long enough to save a few more late duck nests from getting mowed over.

    Some areas that were very dry prior to the rain have already seen some yield drop but at least they should have a crop now.
