Combining is estimated at 90 to 100 percent complete in the southeast part of Saskatchewan and harvest is still expected to continue for several more weeks.
Sherri Roberts, the regional crop specialist in Weyburn, says yields are wide ranging but better than expected in many parts of the southeast.
She says the area had some rain last week but more is needed.
“I would like to see in the next couple of weeks, at least, a couple of inches, if that’s possible,”Roberts said. “Because going into fall this dry, it’s going to hurt the fall cereals. And we want to have as much moisture supply as we can going into the spring.”
Roberts expects harvest to continue for several weeks as farmers wait for some crops to fully mature.
