Generally speaking, Manitoba's corn crop has reached the dent stage.
Morgan Cott is an agronomy extension specialist with the Manitoba Crop Alliance.
"We've got enough moisture. I think that roots are as deep as they're going to get and they've been looking for the moisture and have been finding it all season long. I've seen a few fields that have a little bit of drought symptoms on field edges or field entrances. Generally, we have enough [moisture] to finish the crop off."
Cott says the corn crop is still about 10 days behind normal.
She expects harvest to get underway mid-October.
