Saskatchewan farmers made slow harvest progress during the past week due to cool wet weather.
Provincial crops analyst Shannon Friesen says 78 percent of the crop has been combined, up from 75 percent last week and still ahead of the five year average.
Although yields in the south have been hurt by record dry weather, she still expects an average crop.
There was crop loss this past week due to wildlife, winds, frost and lack of moisture.
Harvest ranges from 92 percent in the southwest to 48 percent in the northwest.
Topsoil moisture conditions have improved but more will be needed.
Topsoil moisture is rated 29 percent adequate, 36 percent short and 35 percent very short.
Another four incidents of farm machinery contacting power lines were reported this week, bringing the monthly total to 21.
Producers are reminded to be careful with equipment around power lines.
