Another week of warm temperatures has allowed Saskatchewan producers to continue harvesting.  Province-wide, 14 per cent of the 2013 crop has been combined, while 28 per cent has been swathed or is ready to straight-cut, according to Saskatchewan Agriculture’s Weekly Crop Report.  The five-year average (2008-2012) for this time of year is 19 per cent combined and 27 per cent swathed or ready to straight-cut.

Harvest is most advanced in the southwestern region, where 30 per cent of the crop is combined.  Fifteen per cent is combined in the southeast; six per cent in the east-central region; 14 per cent in the west-central region; two per cent in the northeast, and four per cent in the northwest.  Warm weather over the past few weeks has helped speed crop development.

Across the province, 63 per cent of peas, 49 per cent of lentils, 66 per cent of winter wheat, five per cent of spring wheat and eight per cent of canola have been combined.  Fifty per cent of the canola has been swathed.  Of the crops that have been harvested, above-average yields are being reported for most areas.

Rain recorded in the province last week ranged from nil to 61 mm.

Grasshoppers and Bertha armyworms caused the majority of the reported crop damage.

Pasture conditions across the province are rated as three per cent excellent, 51 per cent good, 31 per cent fair, 13 per cent poor and two per cent very poor.  Ninety-eight per cent of livestock producers have indicated that they have adequate supplies of water for their livestock.

Across the province, topsoil moisture on cropland is rated as 60 per cent adequate, 33 per cent short and seven per cent very short.  Hay land and pasture topsoil moisture is rated as 51 per cent adequate, 41 per cent short and eight per cent very short.  Some areas in the western and central regions are very dry, which is affecting crop filling and pasture productivity.

Farmers are busy with desiccating, swathing and combining.
