September has been a tough month for harvest in much of Manitoba, as frequent rains have given rise to moist ground conditions and therefore damp crops in swath and stem rot and breakage in standing grain. This year, the later seeding dates pushed back harvest dates and resulted in more acres remaining to harvest in September. Across the province, wheat, canola, oats, beans and soybeans are all significantly behind the three year harvest progress. Overall harvest progress is at 59% when the three year average is 70%.
