Seeding half done in Manitoba
By Top Crop Manager
May 11, 2015 - The Manitoba Crop Report for this week states seeding progress in the province is estimated at 55 per cent complete.
Overall, seeding is 40 to 50 per cent complete in the southwest region, 35 to 40 per cent complete in the northwest region, 70 to 80 per cent complete in the central region, 70 per cent complete in the eastern region and 50 to 60 per cent complete in the Interlake region.
Early seeded cereal crops, canola, corn and peas are emerging; however, growth continues to be slow due to cool temperatures, with reports of below 0 C across Manitoba. Crop injury symptoms such as frost banding in cereals has been noted. Assessments of emerged crops will continue over the next few days to determine the extent of crop damage, if any, from the frost events.
