Saskatchewan farmers made good harvest progress this past week before light showers late in the week put field work on hold.
Agriculture minister David Marit says the latest crop report puts harvest at 27 percent, up from 16 percent last week.
Harvest ranges from 46 percent in the southwest to 5 percent in the northwest.
There were some light showers, with the heaviest rain in the Ponteix area at 29 millimeters.
Topsoil remains very dry with soil moisture rated 25 percent adequate, 46 percent short and 29 percent very short.
Many southern and central areas have not received significant rainfall in close to two months and crops continue to mature rapidly.
The majority of crop loss this past week was due to lack of moisture and strong winds.
Marit adds there remain concerns about feed shortages in drier areas of the province.
