Inputs: The Podcast
The effects of excess moisture in Manitoba
By Stefanie Croley
April, May and June showers bring… bumper crops? That’s the hope, especially in Manitoba, where excess rain has delayed seeding and spraying, impacted crop emergence and created high weed, disease and insect pest pressure. In this episode of Inputs, co-host Dylan Sjolie chats with entomologist John Gavloski and field crop pathologist David Kaminski, both with Manitoba Agriculture, on the challenges producers are facing in the province. Gavloski and Kaminski share insight on how precipitation affects the development of plant diseases and insects, as well as advice and predictions for the remainder of the season.
- Manitoba Agriculture releases a weekly crop report with regional information for producers.
- Manitoba Crop Pest Updates are released regularly through the growing season.
- Fusarium head blight risk maps are updated daily through the season.
