Manitoba Crop Report

Crops are generally in average to good condition, according to the latest Manitoba Agriculture crop report.
 
The exception however, is in low-lying areas that have been subjected to frequent rainfall over the past three weeks.
 
Winter cereals are reaching the soft dough stage, and turning colour with harvest expected to start in about two weeks.
 
The report indicates corn and sunflowers are growing well with heat and moisture, tassling and flowering are beginning.
 
Canola and peas are suffering in places from excess moisture, but doing well in others. Cereals are rated as mostly good to excellent.
 
Meantime, grasshoppers have become a concern in cereal and soybean fields.
