Soybean seeding is just beginning in eastern and central Manitoba, and seeding of peas and faba beans is well underway throughout the province, according to the latest Bean Report from the Manitoba Pulse and Soybean Growers. 

Soils are warmnig quickly, reaching temperatures about 10 C at planting depth (five centimetres) at many locations averaged over the day. Warm soils can increase the rate of soybean emergence, which is risky for those regions with normal spring frosts ending in late May. It is recommended to seed more frost-tolerant crops, such as peas, faba beans and cereals prior to planting soybeans.
