Change In Weather Slows Fall Field Work

Most crops are off the field here in Manitoba.
 
Dane Froese is an Industry Development Specialist with Manitoba Agriculture.
 
"We've had excellent progress to the end of the harvest year in the Central Region. Right now, a little bit of corn and sunflowers still out in the field but those are wrapping up very quickly and we're nearly done harvest at this time. In the Red River Valley, there was certainly some producers that are trying to beat some of the snow, some made it, some didn't, but some tillage was still ongoing as the snow was coming down. Working in a little extra moisture."
 
Total harvest progress in Manitoba sits at 98 per cent complete. That's about two weeks ahead of normal.
 
Grain corn is at 76 per cent complete, while sunflowers are 81 per cent done.
