Morris-area farmer, Gord Snarr, has wrapped up cereal harvest for the year.
Overall he said the quality was good, however, the protein levels of the wheat was a little on the low-side. Yields, in general, were good with canola coming in a bit lower than expected. "It was acceptable. An average yield I guess," noted Snarr.
Up next for Snarr is soybean harvest.
"It's looking like about a week depending on the kind of weather we get," he said, "In some of the later soybeans probably another two-and-a-half/three weeks possibly."
He admitted that the dry conditions this summer have caused the soybean crop to suffer a bit, and said an inch of rain at the end of July would have been a big help.
Snarr added that rain would also help fall field work move along, and noted that the ground is very hard.
"I've been just doing heavy harrowing on the stubble here and it seems to work as good as anything at the moment."
He said he hasn't yet done any tilling except a few test spots. "I was afraid of breaking shanks so we shut that down."
There is the slight chance of showers forecast for the region on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday but the odds sit at sixty percent.
