Manitoba crop report: May 12
May 12, 2014 - Despite continuing cool and wet conditions across Manitoba, some limited seeding tillage operations and fertilizer applications took place. For other areas, warm and dry weather is needed in order for field work and seeding operations to start.
Manitoba's winter cereal crops continue to be assessed for winter survival and establishment as fields break dormancy and resume growth. Winterkill and injury is being reported in some fields, although it is too early in some areas to determine the extent of the damage.
Pasture and hay growth continues to be slow due to the cooler weather conditions, and in some cases excess moisture. Some producers are moving cattle to pasture.
