Harvest 2015 continues to progress extremely well for producers across Saskatchewan.

Shannon Friesen with Saskatchewan Agriculture explained the details from the latest crop report.

"forty percent of the provincial crop is now in the bin, that is well ahead of the five year average of 25 percent combined and up from last week which was 29 percent."

In the east-central region 22 percent of the crop has been combined.

Elsewhere, 61 percent of the crop in the southwest is in the bin, 59 percent in the southeast, 33 percent in the west-central region and 20 percent in the the northeast.

Rainfall over the labour day long weekend delayed harvest operations, ranging from small amounts to over four inches in some areas.

Topsoil moisture conditions on cropland are rated as 16 percent surplus, 76 percent adequate, seven percent short and one percent very short. Hayland and pasture topsoil moisture conditions are rated as six percent surplus, 80 percent adequate, 12 percent short, and two percent very short.

Yields are varying greatly but overall are estimated to be close to average.

Farmers are busy with harvest operations as the weather continues to be favorable, producers are also seeding winter cereals at this time.
