Significant harvest progress in Saskatchewan

Oct. 20, 2014 - Significant harvest progress was made last week thanks to warm and dry weather, according to Saskatchewan Agriculture's Weekly Crop Report.

Eighty-nine per cent of the 2014 crop is now combined and eight per cent is swathed or ready to straight-cut. This is right in line with the five-year (2009-2013) average of 91 per cent combined and seven per cent swathed or ready to straight-cut.

Harvest is furthest advanced in the northwestern region, where 96 per cent of the crop is combined. Ninety-five per cent is combined in the northeastern region; 94 per cent in the southwestern and west-central regions; 83 per cent in the southeastern region; and 79 per cent in the east-central region. Many producers have finished harvest operations while others will need at least another week or more of warm and dry weather.
