Saskatchewan farmers made limited harvest progress during the past week.
Provincial crops analyst Daphne Cruise says 80 per-cent of the crop has been combined, up from 70 per-cent last week.
The five year average for this time of year is 86 per-cent.
Harvest is most advanced in the southeast at 88 per-cent.
81 per-cent of the crop has been harvested in the southwest, 77 per-cent in the east-central region, 73 per-cent in west-central, 78 per-cent in the northeast and northwest.
Rain was general across the province, slowing harvest progress.
The largest amount was 91 millimeters or almost four inches in the Hazenmore area, 250 kilometers southwest of Regina.
Parts of the southeast had 75 millimeters or three inches.
Snow will also cause harvest delays.
Spring wheat grades are below the 10 year average with 10 per-cent number one, 50 per-cent number 2, 28 per-cent number 3 and 12 per-cent feed grade.
Yield estimates haven’t changed much from last month and remain average to above average for most crops.
Topsoil moisture is rated 27 per-cent surplus, and 73 per-cent adequate.
Many regions have more than half of cropland with surplus topsoil moisture.
Strong winds and flooding caused the majority of crop damage this past week, resulting in yield and quality loss.
Bleaching, sprouting and fusarium are causing grade loss.
