June 30, 2014 - Many areas of Manitoba received significant amounts of rainfall over the weekend, adding to the rainfall already received over the past few weeks, according to this week's Manitoba crop report.
The wet and cool weather conditions continue to impact crops as symptoms of excess moisture stress, including yellowing and slowed crop development are evident in many fields. Crop death has also been noted in the most severely impacted areas of the fields. It is anticipated that further crop damage will occur due to flooding and saturated soil conditions.
Wet conditions also impacted herbicide and fungicide applications. Aerial application has increased as some fields are too wet for ground application.
