Harvest is moving into full gear across the southern grainbelt.
Crop specialist Allie Noble says one percent of the crop has been combined, on par with the 5 year average.
She says harvest is most advanced in the south at 3 percent while central and northern areas will be underway shortly.
Noble says there was some rain this past week but its too late to help many crops in the southern grainbelt.
She says yields so far range from average to well below average, depending on summer rainfall.
She says there was some severe hail damage to crops near Cabri and Leader in the western grainbelt.
Lack of moisture, strong winds and high temperatures also caused some crop loss during the past week.
Topsoil moisture is rated 42 percent adequate, 40 percent short and 18 percent very short.
Hay yields are below average overall with dryland hay yields estimated at 1.1 tons per acre for alfalfa and alfalfa/bromegrass.
