Hardly any progress was made on harvest over the last week by Saskatchewan farmers due to snow and heavy rain.
Saskatchewan Agriculture reports 81 per cent of the crop is combined, up slightly from the 80 per cent completion reported the week before. In addition, 15 per cent of the crop is swathed or ready to straight-cut.
The southeast region is the furthest along at 89 per cent of crop in the bin, followed by the southwest at 85 per cent. The west-central region is the furthest behind, having 73 per cent combined.
The five-year average for harvest at this point in the year is 93 per cent.
Sask Ag said many fields are still very wet, so harvest will likely continue to be slow once farmers do get back out on the field. While the forecast is a little more favourable in the immediate future, it could take a few days for land to dry out.
