WINNIPEG (Dow Jones) -- Harvest operations in Saskatchewan remained at 99% complete, according to the latest--and last--weekly crop update for the year from Saskatchewan Agriculture.
The five-year (2007-2011) provincial average for this time of year is 94% combined, the report for the week ended October 14 said.
Warm and dry harvest weather allowed Saskatchewan producers to get the 2012 crop in the bin in mostly good condition. The northwestern region had 98% of the crop combined and all other regions reported that 99% of the crop was in the bin. In addition, 95% of the flax had been combined.
