Seeding Underway For Canadian Foodgrains Bank

Farmers have begun seeding fields for the Canadian Foodgrains Bank (CFGB).
 
Gordon Janzen is the Regional Representative for Manitoba.
 
"Seeding has been going ahead fairly well for most of the growing projects, although it was slow in getting started," he said. "It was pretty cold and some of the ground was pretty wet for a while into May but now at the end of May a lot of the projects have been able to get going."
 
Janzen says Manitoba has close to 40 grow projects (about 5,000 acres) this year, with most growing wheat, canola or soybeans. There are also a few fields of corn being grown as well.
 
One of the returning projects this year is the Scratching River grow project near Rosenort, which hasn't planted a field for a few years.
