Farmers get early start on harvest, thanks to dry, hot weather

This year’s hot, dry weather has enabled farmers to get an early start on harvest operations, with four per cent of the 2015 crop already in the bin, well ahead of the five-year average, according to Saskatchewan Agriculture’s weekly crop report. “We really haven’t had this kind of progress in a number of years.’’ said Shannon Friesen, cropping management specialist with Saskatchewan Agriculture’s Moose Jaw region.
