Frost injury in Manitoba crops
By Top Crop Manager
June 1, 2015 - Seeding progress in Manitoba is estimated at 93 per cent complete, according to the Manitoba crop report.
Many areas in the province recorded below freezing temperatures on Saturday, May 30. Frost injury symptoms are evident, and crop growth and final plant stands are being assessed. The level of crop damage will depend on the stage of crop development, minimum air temperatures reached, and the duration of those temperatures.
Reseeding of mainly canola acres continues from mid-May's frost, wind and excess moisture conditions. Producers have also begun reseeding canola in some areas due to crop damage from the May 30 frost.
