Harvest is most advanced in the southern part of the province as the southwest region has 46 per cent of the crop combined and the southeast has 42 per cent of the crop in the bin. Closer to Saskatoon in the west-central part of Saskatchewan, Crop Extension Specialist Allie Noble says the amount of crops harvested vary depending on how much rain fall a producer may have received earlier in the summer. Provincially, 96 per cent of the fall rye, 76 per cent of the field peas, 78 per cent of the winter wheat, 74 per cent of lentils, 30 per cent of the mustard, 36 per cent of the barley, 32 per cent of the durum, 16 per cent of the spring wheat and seven per cent of the canola are now in the bin. Noble says it was a good week for the Moose Jaw area with 42 per cent of the crop harvested which is up from 24 per cent a week prior. As for rainfall, the amount of rain recorded in the province was quite minimal with the Ponteix area leading the way by recording 29mm between August 21st and August 27th. As for topsoil moisture conditions, they remain unchanged. Throughout the province topsoil moisture conditions on cropland are rated as 25 per cent adequate, 46 per cent short and 29 per cent very short. Hay land and pasture topsoil moisture is rated as 21 per cent adequate, 38 per cent short and 41 per cent very short. Majority of crop damage throughout the August 21st to 27th period was due to the lack of moisture and strong winds.
