For the Period October 9 to 15, 2018

Very little harvest progress was made again this past week; however, many producers are now back in the field or expect to be in the coming days. Forecasted warm and dry weather will allow harvest to resume in much of the region. Harvest remains at 89 per cent complete in the region, slightly behind the five-year (2013-2017) average of 92 per cent for this time of year. Any grain that has come off recently is tough or damp and is being placed in dryers .

Most of the region received little to no precipitation, although the Moosomin area reported 13 mm. The Alida and Weyburn areas received 1 mm of precipitation, the Broadview area 7 mm, the Tantallon area 12 mm, the Wilcox and Moose Jaw areas 3 mm and the Indian Head area 10 mm. The Lampman area has received the most precipitation (475 mm) in the region since April 1.

Topsoil moisture conditions continue to improve; conditions on cropland are rated as 74 per cent adequate, 20 per cent short and six per cent very short; hay land and pasture topsoil moisture is rated as 72 per cent adequate, 24 per cent short and four per cent very short.

Most crop damage this past week was due to lodging from snow and rain; downgrading is expected due to bleaching and sprouting. Geese and other wildlife have been feeding on swathed crops.

Producers are busy combining, drying grain, shipping cattle and baling straw.
