Heavy rain and snow this week is expected to cause a significant delay to harvest across Saskatchewan.
Provincial crops analyst Daphne Cruise says many farmers will need 4 to 5 days of warm dry weather before they can resume combining.
Cruise expects both yield and quality will be affected by the severe weather.
She says some cereal crops will have bleaching or sprouting.
Cruise adds there may be some shattering of canola.
As well, the snow will flatten crops, making harvest slow and difficult.
Last week’s crop report had 70 per-cent of harvest completed.
