Continued wet weather around the province has resulted in very little harvest progress since the beginning of October. But the northeast region is drier than most allowing for combines and continued harvesting since the snow fell roughly three weeks ago.
While rain continued to dampen much of Saskatchewan in the last week, periods of dry weather in the Prince Albert and northeast areas helped the region make the most progress in the province, according to this week’s provincial crop report.
Dryer weather in the south in recent days has improved harvest progress across the province, bringing 2016 in line with the five-year average. Despite the wet conditions, producers in the Prince Albert region are still making gains.
