Oat Harvest Wrapping Up

Manitoba's oat harvest is nearly complete.
 
Jenneth Johanson is the president of the Prairie Oat Growers Association (POGA).
 
"The stuff that came off before the weather turned, there was a lot of variation all depending on where rainfall came this summer," she said. "The yields weren't as good as previous years but there were pockets that had some pretty decent yields and then there were pockets that had poorer yields due to lack of moisture throughout the season."
 
Johanson says quality loss is a concern for oats that were taken off during the past few weeks.
