Crop Report
September 6, 2022

Northwest Region
High temperatures and warm, drying winds helped harvest progress nicely across the region. Some precipitation mid-week with the Rorketon weather station receiving the most at 15.5 mm. For the most part, there was very little pause in harvest progress. Harvest is most advance in the Roblin and Swan Valley areas as these areas were first seeded. The warm temperatures and winds have allowed a few late nights of harvest.

Provincial Overview
Harvest progress sits at 15% completed across the province, well behind the 5-year average of 51% completed by this time. The effect of delayed seeding, high humidity and frequent rains have had an impact delaying harvest. Ideal harvesting conditions allowed for significant progress this past week.

Crop condition looks good to very good in most parts of the province, while the bulk of the crops have been desiccated.

Spring wheat harvest is expected to become widespread later this week as crops dry down and weather forecasts remain warm and sunny.

Lodged crops due to recent isolated heavy rain and wind events in some regions have disrupted smooth harvest operations in peas and some cereals.

A limited start to soil testing has begun in fields already harvested.
