Harvest is Progressing

Posted by Flaman Sep 09, 2016

Harvest is progressing at a steady rate across the province. This is ahead of the five-year (2011-2015) average of 28 per cent combined for this time of year.

Harvest is furthest along in the southeast region, with 34 per cent of the crop in the bin.

Provincially, 92 per cent of winter wheat, 64 per cent of field peas, 40 per cent of lentils, 10 per cent of durum and spring wheat and seven per cent of canola is combined, with 52 per cent of canola swathed.

As for the hay crop, it is estimated that four per cent of forage acres will not be harvested due to a wet and humid haying season.

Saskatchewan producers made good progress with harvest. Thirty-two per cent of the crop has been combined and 38 per cent is swathed or ready to straight-cut, according to Saskatchewan Agriculture’s Weekly Crop Report.
