Harvest for many producers has been slowed over the last week, as cool and damp weather was felt across Saskatchewan
Even with the cool weather, harvest progress for the province is at 73 per cent, up from 64 per cent from last week, and ahead of the five-year average of 68 per cent.
“Certainly a lot of progress for sure, but not as much of a jump as maybe some people would have expected,” crops extensions specialist for the ministry of agriculture Matthew Struthers said.
“So going forward, we would like to see that cool, damp weather just hold off just a little bit longer, and then we can get all the crop off and then let it rain. And eventually one day let it snow, but not yet,” he said with a laugh.
