Manitoba Agriculture says harvest completion across all regions of the province has reached 35%.
Cooler, wet and humid weather has delayed harvest operations, which will affect the quality of remaining unharvested cereal acres.
Soil moisture has rapidly improved in nearly all areas of Manitoba, with the top 30 cm of soil showing conditions as optimal to wet, based on field capacity. These trends are reflected at depths, where subsoil moisture has also improved slightly.
Wetter surface conditions in many fields have meant that sprayer desiccant or harvesting operations have left ruts or tracks.
Substantial rains have meant that hay and pastureland has now greened up, and livestock producers are intensively managing regrowth areas to support fall grazing.Click here to see more...
