The Manitoba Wheat and Barley Growers Association held its AGM last week at CropConnect.
Chair Fred Greig talked about the potential for acres for 2020.
"I think we see an uptick in barley acres again. The feed prices put a baseline under the malt so the salvage is good," he said. "Wheat, it's a little early to tell. I think the sting of a lot of feed wheat after the snows and rains will ease and I think acres will be fairly flat."
Greig says yields in 2019 were surprisingly good.
Manitoba Wheat and Barley Growers is one of five groups that will be part of the new Manitoba Crop Alliance after a merger vote was passed last week.Click here to see more...
