Widespread rain delays Sask. harvest amid fears of crop downgrading

Widespread rain across the Saskatchewan grainbelt is delaying harvest and may cause some crop loss.

Rainfall has reached over 25 millimeters in Regina.
Hepworth is worried about possible downgrading of some cereal crops, particularly durum wheat.
