Jun 11, 2019 | 07:48 1 Will it materialize?...Lerner says spotty showers...

Here is hoping....most of mine is still in dry dirt ...a very late start....more than likely greenfeed... Reply With Quote
Jun 11, 2019 | 07:55 2 Accuweather .... 22 sunny and pleasant.

Weather Network... 22 BUT 40% of 1mm

All the rest around 22-25 NO RAIN

These are all for the 15th.

WE ARE FLUCKERED!!!!!

It’s time to face reality, have your sprayers ready for a second burnoff. There could be a shortage of glyphosate, better book NOW. Reply With Quote

    Or it's political and they want the Sheer Conservatives to be the ones to "show us the money". Reply With Quote

    Irrigation,but I must say at least we have a global trade Hub in the middle of the orairies. Lmao!!!! Reply With Quote

    Not sure how they find the money for 40 bucks an acre for district irrigators to guarantee a crop while the rest of us dryland farmers get to pay for it and get SFA for support...


    And the irrigators yields will be off as well....

    150000 acres at 40 bucks for 5 years for no more than 50 farmers....you do the math... Reply With Quote
    Jun 11, 2019 | 08:53 8 Some people are about to get a hard lesson farming in western canada. Especially cocky young uns, investors, seed companies, banks and foreign farmers. I have seen some crazy aggressive moves around me in the past few yrs. Who goes and buys 5 million dollars in land at once? Who rents 10,000 acres but owns none? Who basically has farmers edge in their field every day advising them what to throw down next? Reply With Quote

  • Jun 11, 2019 | 09:32 10 Prairie Weather Watch... Forecasts this morning call for rain in much of Saskatchewan for later this week. Some showers around overnight in central/eastern Saskatchewan. Alberta and Manitoba mostly sunny and near seasonal, with the prospects of 1-2 days of light shower days possible.

    Lotto rain coming to an area near you.
    If you really think about that means no one will get anything.
    Not sure where this one was dreamed up, just another “possible” reason to bring down da prices. Reply With Quote

    Don't get your hopes up. It ain't gonna happen. Those kind of payments are a thing of the past. Reply With Quote
    Jun 11, 2019 | 10:59 14 I doubt anyone in sask politics or Federal politics will even blink an eye at Ag .
    All politicians just watched “farmer” Billy B walk away with millions .... there is a general resentment because of that .. especially from Ralph .
    We will have to rely on the programs available like crop insurance ... there most likely will be no extra funding. Why would they, the perceived thought is we are all just like Billy Boyd Reply With Quote

    Jun 11, 2019 | 12:34 17 Biggest rain I see in the forecast for this area is 5mm and that won't do much to change anything.

    But then there is Enviro Canada and they have us down for period of rain for Friday night again! That sounds good. Guess I will just use my imagination as to what that means. Reply With Quote

    farmaholic's Avatar Jun 11, 2019 | 15:36 27 I think all those weather models are fucked. Do any of them take into account the atmospheric and ground level conditions those approaching systems are moving into or through? Unless a system brings its own moisture into the Ghetto's atmosphere it won't get any here, and from drought maps I see, any on its way here either. We are out of surface water here...kinda hard to prime the rain pump. Also, there isn't alot of transpiration either from a slow weak crop with retarded development. Humidity here is generally low....ITS DRY! Seems dryness begets dryness!

    One day at a time. And each day that passes is either a day closer to relief or just more pain. Nothing I can do about it!
