Manitoba Harvest Nears Two-Thirds Finished

Spotty rainfall and humidity continued to slow fieldwork in most areas of Manitoba this past week, but producers are still managing to keep the harvest on track. 

Tuesday’s weekly crop report pegged the overall harvest in the province at 64% complete, up from 51% a week earlier and 10 points ahead of the five-year average. 

Producers in the Central Region are still leading the way, with 77% of the crop in the bin, followed by the Northwest at 62% done, the Southwest at 59%, the Interlake at 57%, and the Eastern at 55%. 

The dry pea harvest has now wrapped up in all regions, with the provincial oat and barley harvests close behind at 95% complete. An estimated 93% of the spring wheat crop is off, along with 55% of the canola, 21% of the soybeans and 72% of the dry beans. Meanwhile, many corn fields have reached black layer and are drying down, the report said.
