Manitoba Farmers Continue To Support Canadian Foodgrains Bank

Close to 40 grow projects are underway this year in Manitoba for the Canadian Foodgrains Bank.
 
Regional Rep Gordon Janzen says overall the crops are looking good.
 
"A number of them had quite a bit of a late start in planting," he commented. "Some of that was due to the wet soils from last year. I think they're doing alright. Our biggest concern really is for the farmers and our growing projects in the areas around Rivers, Minnedosa, and Neepawa."
 
Those farmers are dealing with the impacts of heavy rains.
 
Janzen says the most common crops being grown this year are canola and soybeans.
