Saskatchewan Agriculture crop specialist Grant McLean told the Times-Herald that in most cases Moose Jaw-area farmers are enjoying crops that are progressing fairly smoothly.

“The crops in general are looking quite good,” he said adding the recent heat has allowed farmers to bring in the hay, and decent hay at that.

“As we get into the August, generally the hay quality has been quite good.”

McLean said he expects farmers to start harvesting early crops such as winter wheat and lentils within the next 10 days. He added most farmers are currently getting machinery and storage ready for the more general harvest to come later in the month.
