Rainfall this week is expected to provide a boost to pastures and some late maturing crops across Saskatchewan.
The grainbelt, according to officials received a trace to two inches of moisture.
The biggest downpour was in Saskatoon at over 50 millimeters.
Regina and Yorkton had around 15 millimeters and Regina area farmer Bill Gehl sees limited benefit for rapidly-maturing fields.
He says yields are surprisingly good considering it is the driest year since 1894.
“The lentils this year have been coming in around the 20 to 30 range,” Gehl said. “I think there are some guys that are pleasantly surprised.”
Gehl estimates harvest at far less than 10 percent in the Regina area.
