Farmers in Saskatchewan welcome this week’s rain even if it does hamper harvest wrap-up.
The chair of the Western Canadian Wheat Growers, Jim Wickett, says the moisture will delay harvest, but he remains optimistic farmers will be back on the combine within a week.
He says any moisture is positive after a record dry summer.
“We were very dry, like most of Saskatchewan,” Wickett said. “This is very welcome. It’s a bit of a recharge and gives us a bit of a break.”
Although snow has hit the southwest corner, Wickett says most harvest is wrapped up in that area.
