Harvest in the southeast is turning out to be a bit of a surprise for some growers.

Manitoba Agriculture farm production advisor John McGregor says prior to harvest there was concern about poor yields.  Instead most wheat is coming off number one with 35 to 50 bushels per acre.  Oats and barley are pretty much done and yields are in the 80 to 100 bushel range.  Meantime McGregor says rain this past week should help soybeans and corn.  And crops like alfalfa and some of the grasses should start to come back.  Second cut yields were quite low and this will help some areas get to a third or even fourth cut.
