Although wet and cool weather conditions last week continued to delay harvest in much of the province, many producers are back in the field or will be soon. According to Saskatchewan Agriculture's weekly Crop Report, 82 per cent of the crop is now in the bin, up from 78 per cent but behind the five-year average of 91 per cent for this time of year. The warm and dry weather forecast for the next week or more will allow producers to resume combining.
Harvest remains most advanced in the southwest, where 90 per cent of the crop is now combined, and in the southeast, where 89 per cent is combined; these numbers are unchanged from two weeks ago. Producers in the northeastern region have 79 per cent of the crop combined; the west-central region has 74 per cent and the east-central region 68 per cent. Producers in the northwestern region have been delayed by frequent snowfalls, but now have 45 per cent combined.
