Thursday is the deadline for Saskatchewan farmers to apply for crop insurance post-harvest claims and production declarations.
The executive director at Saskatchewan Crop Insurance, Darby Warner, says harvest is virtually complete and he expects an average year for crop damage claims.
He says most of those claims will be weather-related.
Warner says the worst damage came from frost in September and losses at harvest from rain and snow.
He adds there are also claims due to dry spring weather in the southern grainbelt as well as geese and duck damage this fall.
Harvest is 99 percent complete and Warner estimates about 300 thousand acres are still to be combined before final losses can be tallied.
