Rain Stalls Manitoba Harvest

Manitoba producers made minimal harvest progress this past week as fieldwork was bogged down by steady rainfall. 

Tuesday’s weekly crop report showed the provincewide harvest at 40% complete, up only 8 points on the week and approximately three weeks behind the five-year average of 71% complete. Last week, the Manitoba harvest was lagging the average by a more modest 10 days. 

“Farmers are anxiously awaiting drier weather to return to straight-cutting cereal and canola crops, and for breezy days to dry down damp swaths,” the report said. 

Harvest is the most advanced in the Central region at 50% complete, followed by the Northwest at 45%, the Eastern region at 37%, the Southwest at 34%, and the Interlake at 22%.
