With the warm temperatures of recent, Saskatchewan Agriculture crop specialist Grant McLean said crops in the maturing well.
In fact, he said, for a few farmers south of Moose Jaw the harvest for winter wheat and fall rye is likely to begin in the very near future.
He said farmers might start harvesting these crops next week, while early-spring crops such as lentils might begin within the next two weeks.
One crop, McLean told the Times-Herald, is being harvested around Moose Jaw already — hay.
According to the Saskatchewan Agriculture weekly crop report for July 17-23, livestock producers continue to make good haying progress and now have 79 per cent of the hay crop cut.
