Crop Report for the Period of August 17 to 23, 2021

Rainy, cool weather throughout the province delayed combining progress this week.  Harvest progressed to 29 per cent complete, up from 20 per cent last week and well over the five-year average of 12 per cent.  An additional 21 per cent of the crop is now swathed or ready to straight-cut, ahead of the five-year average of 16 per cent.  Producers would have rather had rain during critical stages of the growing season, but were happy to receive significant amounts of it this week.
