Seeding weather

Landdownunder's Avatar Mar 13, 2023 | 15:37 1 Modelling,gut feel, historical data suggests a late break to season here in oz maybe very very late but we have some subsoil moisture.

Just back from WA australian premier wheat canola producing state perth there capital 1.5mm of rain for the 3 months of summer doubt they have much sub soil moisture. But its a big state.

Are you guys looking at potential seeding delays if you get more snow.

And some experts saying USA is in ok shape wheat im talking others say worse than reported.

EU a bit on the dry side as well. Reply With Quote

Alot of dry seeding happens here on presumption of rain in the ensuing weeks some times it works sometimes miserable failure Reply With Quote

    No frost and no subsoil moisture in most areas will mean snow will disappear very quick by end of April .
    80% of western Canada will need significant rain to grow an average crop
