Excess moisture is expected to delay a resumption of harvest in northeast Saskatchewan for several more weeks.
Lyndon Hicks is the regional crop specialist in Yorkton.
He says water is running and most snow is off the field in his region, but fields won’t be dry enough for combining for at least a couple weeks or more.
“Hopefully, when the combines get rolling, it doesn’t take that long,” says Hicks. “Maybe like a week, but it’s going to get busy with combining and trying to seed. But hopefully it doesn’t take too long to wrap the harvest up.”
An estimated 1.3 million acres of crop remain to be harvested across Saskatchewan.
