OMAFRA: Early April crop conditions in Ontario
April 11, 2023 By OMAFRA Field Crop News team
The OMAFRA Field Crop News team has put out a post about crop conditions for Ontario growers as of April 6, including crop-specific and weed control information. According to the post, spring seems to be shaping up well in general. No issues with respect to supply of seed, fertilizer or crop protection products have been reported, but there may be some switching of options in-season.
A relatively dry winter has led to apprehension about the potential for dry soils heading into the spring, but recent heavy rains have alleviated those concerns in the southwest part of the province. There are also concerns around interest rates, labour, etc., but overall, growers are fairly optimistic and many have locked in good prices for 2023. |READ MORE
