Harvest has just begun for one grower who farms north of Morris.

Gord Snare seeded 1,200 acres of grains, oilseeds, and special crops this spring mostly along the Red River.

His combine rolled into its first field of the season yesterday, that being oats.

Early indications are the heat and lack of moisture this summer impacted yields.

Snare expects the field will come in at approximately 75 bushels per acre.

As for his other crops, Snare is pleased with how well his later seeded wheat has held up, and feels his beans will benefit greatly from the rainfall over the past week.
