Pulse weekly outlook: Saskatchewan crops rally after rough spring

Winnipeg– Pulse crops across the prairies have largely bounced back after rough growing conditions in the spring and early summer, but they’re not out of the woods just yet.
 
“It’s been an abnormal year,” remarked Carl Potts, executive director of Saskatchewan Pulse.
 
 
Potts explained that in Saskatchewan, widespread dryness early in the growing season resulted in delayed emergence and development. However, welcome rains throughout July have improved conditions significantly.
 
“Across the province, we’ll likely be expecting average yields for pulses,” he said.
 
 
Unseasonable temperatures have resulted in differences in crop maturity and development within a field. In some cases, a field can have both emerging and developing crops, depending on the area.
