Saskatchewan farmers are hoping for a return to warm dry weather this week to resume harvest operations.
Combining has been slowed by rainy wet weather for most of the last month.
Agriculture minister David Marit says farmers need at least a couple weeks of warm dry weather to wrap up the 2018 harvest.
He says “They’re all eager to see this weather improve.” “The long-range looks really good for harvest.”
He hopes farmers will be able to get the vast majority of the crop off in the next few weeks.
Harvest is estimated at 78 percent province-wide, but much of the northern grainbelt has significant crop still in the field.
The northwest is estimated at 44 percent complete.
