Manitoba Harvest 2019; One For The Record Books

As we transition out of Harvest 2019 in southern Manitoba, we can’t help but reflect on what was a historical few months of unordinary weather. The Precision Land Solutions team put together some year-over-year comparisons regarding the rainfall that we experienced here in Manitoba – the results are worth sharing.

A few key highlights include:
  • Brandon experienced the 11th wettest year in 129 years
  • Fort Frances had the 15th wettest year in 131 years
  • Morden experienced the 19th wettest year in 131 years
  • Portage had 124.1 mm of rain above average
  • Oakbank saw 179.6 mm of more rain than it did in 2018

 

Manitoba Potato Harvest 2019

With high moisture levels and cold temperatures, Manitoba farmers were hit with frost that left many in a difficult situation. Potato harvesting across the province ceased after cold temperatures started late Oct. 27, and continued for several more days. Manitoba’s potato harvest was left with thousands of acres undug. While the final figures aren’t in, an estimated 12,000 acres of potatoes worth more than $50 million didn’t get dug.

What our customers say

By tiling we reduced salt levels, the water table is lower and efficiency is increased.  We are reducing compaction and the disease pressure on fields that are susceptible to diseases caused  by excess moisture.
