Manitoba Crop Report

Manitoba Agriculture says crops are advancing quickly and generally in average to good condition, except in low-lying areas subject to frequent rainfall over the past three weeks.
 
Winter cereals are reaching the hard dough stage and turning colour. Harvest is expected to begin in less than two weeks.
 
Grasshoppers are a concern in all areas and crops.
 
Corn and sunflowers are growing well with heat and moisture, as tassling and flowering are beginning. Canola and peas are suffering in some places from excess moisture. Cereals are rated as mostly good to excellent.
