This is at least very much needed moisture, scary to be this dry at this time of year.
We pray for a forecast like that. Donít happen to often

It was either Rocky or Sundre, I forget. We are roughly equidistance between the 2, and somewhat further to Red Deer, so I typically compare all 3.

Brazil, you are in a completely different climate zone to us this far west, seed away.

This has been one of our driest springs yet we should be on the land by May 5th if the weather holds

Finished up pulse crop seeding and got it covered with spartan by midnight last night. Woke up to 35-60mph winds and snow. Should melt quick and be back in seeding barley and spring wheat. Most in the area are started to finishing up. North central MT.

Lots of seeding going on in the Red River Valley east of me (even one guy seeding potatoes)... not so much on top of the escarpment. I just started applying fertilizer on some lighter land on Sat. I don't think our soil temps are anywhere near where I want them for seed.

We have about 900 of 1250 acres done on our irrigation. HRSW, barley, triticale and peas are all in. As soon as the weather clears we will finish off with our OP seed canola, soybeans and greenfeed field.

Some ground just starting to get scratched around here. I did a little this weekend. Moist, but not terrible. Way too cool soil temps for corn, but I'd like to get in my oats/alfalfa. We need some warmth......and we don't need the 1.7 inch of rain they're saying the next 2 days.
