OMAHA (DTN) -- The following are highlights from the weekly crop progress report issued August 12 from the Manitoba Agriculture, Food and Initiatives department.
Spring crop development, along with winter wheat and forage crop harvest, continues to be slowed by the continuing cool and wet weather in Manitoba.
The majority of crops are either grain-filling or podding, with some of the later-seeded crops finishing up flowering. Swathing of earliest-seeded canola has started.
Winter wheat harvest continues in the Central, Eastern and Interlake Regions with yields ranging from 55 to 80 bushels per acre, with good quality and protein levels.
