Spring Seeding is Done in Manitoba

Seeding has wrapped up in Manitoba, right on par with the four-year average.

Rainfall amounts ranged from 32 millimetres to 107 millimetres in the northwest, with Grandview and McCreary accumulating over 100 millimetres.

Rainfall in several areas has provided a temporary reprieve from dry soil conditions, and saved crops in many cases.

However, timely rains will be needed in one to two week’s time to sustain continued crop growth and yield potential.

Severe flea beetle pressure across nearly the entire province has resulted in widespread foliar insecticide application and reseeding where canola fields were too damaged to support new growth.

The majority of cattle have been put out to pasture.
