REGINA, SK - Crops are ripening quickly in Saskatchewan, and the weekly crop report from the Ministry of Agriculture says condition ranges from poor to good.
 
Producers in southwest Saskatchewan have started harvesting, with 1 per cent of the crop combined and six per cent is swathed or ready to straight-cut.
 
Yields so far range from average to well below average, depending on where the rain fell.

Forty seven per cent of the fall rye in Saskatchewan is now in the bin and many pulse crops in southern and central areas are being desicated.
 
Only 3 per cent of top soil moisture is rated as adequate for cropland -- 93 per cent of hay land and pasture is very short on top soil moisture.
