CROP REPORT FOR THE PERIOD AUGUST 20 TO 26, 2013

While harvest is behind the five-year average for this time of year, above average yields are being reported for most areas.  The five-year average (2008-2012) is 15 per cent combined and 22 per cent swathed or ready to straight cut.  Harvest operations in the southwest region are the furthest ahead with 14 per cent of the 2013 crop combined.

Across the province, 34 per cent of peas, 20 per cent of lentils, 27 per cent of winter wheat and 10 per cent of mustard have been combined.  Twenty-six per cent of canola has been swathed.  Spring cereals are maturing and in some areas producers have started swathing or are ready to straight cut the crops.

Rain recorded in the province last week ranged from nil to 31 mm.  Grasshoppers and bertha armyworm caused some of the reported crop damage.

Farmers in all regions are busy swathing, desiccating, combining and cutting, and baling greenfeed.
