Is it “do or “die” week?

But last year we had a over a foot of rain most of which came after the third week of June so there was plenty of time and moisture to break it down. If we continue to be dry til freeze up this year I will be very concerned.

I have been using Odyssey on peas for ever and recently on Clearfield canola and can't honestly say I noticed damage, maybe I don't know what to look for. Our wheat yields have decent for the area we farm in. Reply With Quote

  • Jun 27, 2020 | 23:23 32 Well I’m in the Southeast and luckily today I had 67 drops on my doorstep. Not nearly enough to wet the step but a good start. 67. Quite remarkable. Pars Reply With Quote

    I played with historical radar imagery, do you see that gap that runs south west of Fort Qu'Appelle between the green patches, we're in there.

    What could I possibly say that wouldn't sound ungreatful?

    So I will say "it's better than nothing" up til now and there is a "chance" for more over the next two days. Reply With Quote

    Jun 28, 2020 | 07:00 38 101, Looks fairly accurate for us.

    I adjusted, played and paused the historical radar imagery until it looked like it was at it's peak rain over us then stopped it and made a screenshot of it.
    Good thing I never slept in otherwise I would have lost the short time frame images!
    Should I go back to bed now? Reply With Quote

    Looks similar to what 101 posted. Reply With Quote
    Jun 28, 2020 | 07:33 40 Good chances for more but maybe not enough? Will have to wobble to the west to give Regina an inch by Wednesday morning Reply With Quote

  • Jun 28, 2020 | 08:37 42 Had good reserve moisture from last fall rains, most crops now look good to excellent.
    Winter wheat maybe not so good, early snow melt and extended cold after not so good for it.
    Spring wheat and barley nearly free of leaf disease so far, wondering about fungicide.
    June rainfall now two and three quarter inches, heaviest showers a half inch.
    Could be turnaround time and have to worry about too much moisture rather than too little. Reply With Quote
    Jun 28, 2020 | 08:40 43 "Fortunate rain recipients", don't be afraid to report. It is what it is....

    How can someone be pissy if someone else gets a better shot of rain?
    Its all luck.
    I won't envy you for a good rain if you don't suffer from schadenfreude over some people's lack of rain.

    Edit in for Hopalong:

    0.67 for the month.
    0.12, 0.17 and 0.19 three biggest rains in June.
    1.80 for the season starting April 1.

    Wind probably hurt us significantly.

    Jun 29, 2020 | 03:48 45 Global News reports violent Sunday evening storms south of Winnipeg, an area including Virden and Brandon. Tornadoes and up to 175 mm. of rain can be expected. Now 175 mm. translates into about 7 inches, That’s a lot of rain. Ahoy, yee water lovers! Send it back our way' we could use a couple of those inches (but no thanks to the tornadoes). Isn’t anybody on Agriville from that region?

    I just went to Environment Canada and there is a heat warning for Brandon with 32 degrees expected Monday.

    Our area is one of the fortunate rain areas Farma. We have had 6 5 inches since May 1st. Others within a few miles more. The crops look awesome. We had some terrible winds this spring as well that caused some damage to crops and shingles as well as a few grain bins. What is really strange for our area is clouds are actually forming here with significant rainfall amounts. That rarely happens. Heres hoping those who are still waiting for a good rain get one soon.

    Jun 29, 2020 | 16:50 49 I believe it’s 3.30/4 pm over there 8.15 am here.

    Looked radar for Bethane is it, showed something but doubt it a earth shattering event.

    Shalllog back in tonight to check your totals metric and imperial please Reply With Quote
    Jun 29, 2020 | 17:40 50 Since I started the thread thought i would give an update to my situation. Firstly, I hate to say what I got for rain when others I know who didn’t get any or very little.
    We received between 1.4-1.8 inches. Very, very thankful!!
    I really hope those didn’t get will get some soon to feel as sense of relief ... just like the crops.
    Could be an interesting night ahead as well as tomorrow. Reply With Quote

    Be sure to ring up Winston and have him secure the Bentley in the car park, it may get dreadful. Reply With Quote

    I'll opt to try and get the Lada running, if I do I'll leave it idle and sit in it doing what I can to keep it running in case things get out of hand! Reply With Quote
