Manitoba farmers make seeding progress

May 22, 2024  By Manitoba Agriculture

Seeding progress has been observed in many areas of Manitoba recently, and the latest edition of the Manitoba crop report states 47 per cent of the province’s seeding is complete. Producers have focused on planting corn (65 per cent complete), cereals (70 per cent complete) and peas (90 per cent complete). Canola planting has just started, with 20 per cent of the acres planted.

“Producers are planting a variety of crops based on soil and weather conditions. Soil temperatures were adequately warm and the seeding of more sensitive crop types such as soybeans has begun. Soybean planting is at 34 per cent completion. The Interlake region is behind other regions due to recent rains and sits at 30 per cent complete,” the report states.

The province’s regular Crop Weather Report compiles a weekly summary of temperature (maximum/minimum/average) and total rainfall along with seasonal accumulations of degree days, corn heat units and rainfall. Data is collected from at least 130 locations in the five regions. ​​​​​​​Read the latest Crop Weather Report here.
