Manitoba farmers enjoy significant rainfall

Much of agro-Manitoba has enjoyed its first decent rain since the start of the year.

A rain system passed through the province July 8 to 10, with significant rainfall accumulations in many regions.

The two regions with highest seasonal accumulations are the southwest and southeast corners of the province. In this storm Waskada saw 17 mm fall and Wawanesa saw 19 mm. Marchand saw 28 mm and Zhoda 23 mm.

The dryer central region saw rainfall from 8 mm around Gladstone to as high as 23 mm in the Morris area.

The parched Interlake finally saw some relief as well, with Inwood seeing 18 mm of rainfall and Arborg 13 mm.

For a full roundup of the rainfall see the tables and crop weather report from Manitoba agriculture.
