Red River Valley making progress with the corn harvest

Manitoba Agriculture's latest crop report shows the provincial harvest is now 95 per cent complete.

Harvest is wrapping up or done in most parts of southern Manitoba.

The corn harvest is most advanced in the Red River Valley with yields running 150 to 200 bushels an acre on average, and between 120 to 150 bushels an acre in the Southwest. The corn harvest was delayed due to  wet field in the Interlake and Eastern regions.

The sunflower harvest is in various stages depending on the region. Some farms are done, while others are waiting for the crop to dry down after the recent rains. Sunflower yields have been average to above average, with more plump kernels and fewer empty shells than in 2021. Average yields are reported between 2,000 to 2,300 lbs/acre.
