Yields in Manitoba average, above average
By Top Crop Manager
Aug. 24, 2015 - Good harvest progress was made in Manitoba throughout the week due to moderate temperatures and dry conditions.
To date, according to the province's crop report, yields of winter and spring wheat, barley, oats and canola are average to above average. Good quality is also noted.
However, a weather system passed through several areas of Manitoba over the weekend that resulted in a wide range of precipitation amounts and strong winds, along with hail in isolated areas. Harvest operations are halted and will resume once weather and field conditions allow.
