Harvest Underway in Manitoba

Harvest progress sits at 3% complete across the province, which is on-par with the 5-year average harvest progress.

Winter wheat and fall rye harvest continues, with 67% of acres harvested.

Early yield reports for winter wheat are averaging about 60 bu/acre.

Harvest has started in spring cereal crops, with the majority of
harvest happening in the central region.

Overall, cereal crops remain in fair to mostly good condition.

Corn is mostly in the R3 to R4 growth stages, with the most advanced crops at R5.

Canola is mostly in the pod fill stage, with some fields starting to turn, and desiccation and swathing starting on a limited number of acres.

Field pea harvest continues, with approximately 22% of acres harvested.

Soybean fields are mostly in the R5 to R6 growth stages.

Rainfall over the past week has helped to alleviate stress in the corn, soybean, and dry bean crops associated with a lack of rainfall.

Producers are encouraged to scout their fields for weeds which have escaped control.

This is an important part of integrated pest management.

Waterhemp has been found in the Central and Eastern regions and producers should seek identification of any unusual pigweed in their field.
