By Top Crop Manager
Oct. 1, 2015 - Warm and relatively dry weather has allowed many Saskatchewan producers to return to the field following last week's rain delay. Seventy-four per cent of the crop is now in the bin while 19 per cent is swathed or ready to straight-cut, according to Saskatchewan Agriculture's weekly Crop Report.
Regionally, producers in the southeast are furthest advanced, having 88 per cent of the crop combined. Producers in the southwest have 85 per cent combined. Seventy per cent of the crop is combined in the west-central region; 66 per cent in the east-central region; 57 per cent in the northwest and 59 per cent in the northeast.
