The 2023 harvest has now wrapped up well ahead of normal in many areas of Saskatchewan.
The latest weekly crop report on Thursday pegged the overall provincial harvest at 91% complete as of Monday, up from 82% a week earlier and comfortably ahead of the five- and 10-year averages of 73%. It is the second fastest harvest pace in the province since 2018, trailing only the 2021 drought year when 95% of the harvest was complete at this time.
Many of this year’s crops are now entirely harvested, the report said, with the remaining crops nearing completion.
Just 7% of the provincial oat crop was still to be harvested as of Monday, along with 12% of the canaryseed. Later maturing crops, or fields seeded later, represented the remaining acres to be harvested. Canola was 80% in the bin as of Monday, followed by soybeans and flax at 64% and 63%, respectively.
