Producers in southeast Saskatchewan are finally, for the most part, on the downhill side of the harvest season.
The reactions to the yields are mixed, given the lack of moisture seen throughout the summer.
"Overall, it's really been a good harvest. We had great weather right through haying time," said Mark Neuman, who farms in the Oxbow area. He has around 99 percent of his crops in the bin.
"Yields are lower than we had expected. My personal one is average or a little below. It wasn't as bad as we had thought, but even so, the drought has had an impact."
He noted that the topography even plays into the equation.
"A lot of low spots yielded very well, but a lot of the hilltops didn't because of the stress on the plants."
Overall, however, Neuman found the harvest smooth, with perfect weather to make that happen.
