Despite rain delays in some areas, Saskatchewan producers now have nine per cent of the 2016 crop combined, according to Saskatchewan Agriculture’s Weekly Crop Report.  This is slightly ahead of the five-year (2011-2015) average of eight per cent for this time of year.  Twenty-one per cent of the crop is swathed or ready to straight-cut.

Regionally, producers in the southeast are the furthest advanced with 19 per cent of the crop in the bin.  Twelve per cent of the crop is combined in the southwest, six per cent in the east-central region, four per cent in the west-central region and three per cent in both the northeast and the northwest.

Eighty-three per cent of winter wheat, 20 per cent of fall rye, 41 per cent of field peas, 21 per cent of lentils, 10 per cent of barley, five per cent of mustard, four per cent of spring wheat, three per cent of durum and two per cent of canola have been combined.  Thirty per cent of canola and 12 per cent of mustard have been swathed.
