Harvest progress varies across the prairies

Manitoba has about 47 per cent of the crop in the bin, Saskatchewan's harvest is now 81 per cent complete, while Alberta's major crop harvest is now 76 to 88 per cent complete.

In Manitoba killing frosts arrived in much of the western side of the province on the morning of September 22nd and much of the rest province saw frost on September 27th. Some crop injury is expected in green canola and soybeans, but damage is expected to be relatively light.

Unharvested cereals have seen some bleaching and staining from recent wet weather, especially where they lie in swath. Quality downgrades are expected in the 
northern parts of the Eastern, Southwest and Interlake regions.  

 Some soybean crops in Manitoba may be harvested ahead of some cereals and canola this year as farms wait for grain moisture content to drop in those crops.
