Farmers say there hasn't been nearly enough rain so far this spring in the Maritimes.
"We're putting water on the beds to get enough moisture for germination because it's almost like powder right now, it's really dry," says farmer Benoit Michaud.
He's using water tankers to douse his fields with over 3000 gallons of water, before his workers plant a single seed.
It takes a lot more time and effort -- but he says the current weather conditions leave him with no choice.
Although there is a plus side to the warm, dry weather.
Benoit say that he's about three weeks ahead of schedule this year, and he's hoping the conditions will give him more time to sell his products.
But he is worried about a long summer drought.
His ideal conditions would be a couple of inches of rain during the night time every week.
If only his bankers were in control of the weather -- then he'd be able to withdrawal exactly what he needs for the season.
"I am always worried," he admits, "but I should let the bankers do the worrying."
