June 10 Manitoba crop report
June 10, 2013 - Seeding progress in Manitoba is estimated to be 94 per cent complete. There remain some areas in the Southwest and Central Regions where seeding is not as advanced. However, progress was made over the past week and favourable weather conditions will allow producers to continue seeding.
Stand establishment is generally rated as good to excellent for most crop types. However, the excess moisture in some areas did impact crop emergence and plant stands, mainly in the low areas of the fields.
Weed control is a priority for producers as crops continue to advance.
Increased flea beetle activity in the earliest-seeded canola fields has been reported.
