OMAHA (DTN) -- The following are highlights from the weekly crop progress report issued Sept. 30 from the Manitoba Agriculture, Food and Initiatives department.

In Manitoba, harvest progress once again slowed over the past week due to rainfall. Harvest operations will resume once field and weather conditions permit.

Spring cereals and canola harvests are the most advanced, with producers making progress on soybeans, edible beans, potatoes, flax, corn silage and green feed. Sunflower and grain corn harvest has yet to start.

Fall field work, including tillage, baling of straw, and soil testing is ongoing.
