Sept. 8, 2014 - Rainfall and cooler temperatures continue to slow harvest progress, haying operations and crop development in Manitoba. The recent weather is also impacting crop quality in some winter wheat, spring wheat, oats and barley fields.
According to the latest Manitoba crop report, harvest is most advanced in the central region with average yields reported for spring cereals and canola.
Grain corn, sunflowers and soybeans continue to mature with forecasted temperatures a concern. Minimal acres of winter wheat have been seeded to date.
