Manitoba Agriculture says harvest progress sits at 32% complete across the province, which is a big jump over the past seven days.

This puts harvest completion approximately 10 harvesting days behind the 5-year average of 65% completed by this time.

Hopefully the weather dries up a bit and then farmers are able to get a good jump on more combining."
