Crop and weather update:

Peace (B.C. and Alberta): Swathing is done, for the most part, but combining is on hold due to rain.

Alberta: Swathing is 30% complete in the south, 50-75% complete as you move toward the Yellowhead Highway and 80% complete north of there. Rain, heavy dew and cool temperatures have slowed harvest progress. Many areas had light frost in the past week. Read the Alberta crop report.

Saskatchewan: Swathing is near complete in the south and 70-80% complete in most other regions. A pocket around Wilkie is at 50%. Combined fields in the Glaslyn area, which had the lowest rainfall in the province this year, are showing the highest yields so far. Heavy rains continue in many regions, with up to 3.5” northeast of Saskatoon and 4” around Moose Jaw and Regina. Most of the province got at least some rain in the past week. Read the Saskatchewan crop report.

Manitoba: Swathing is nearly complete in southern areas and has reached 70-85% complete in the northwest. Combining is 40% complete in the southwest and 70% complete in central and eastern regions. All parts of the province have experienced rain delays. Some eastern locales got up to 7” in the past week. Read the Manitoba crop report.
