June 29, 2015 - Severe weather systems containing strong winds, heavy rains and hail passed through isolated areas in several regions of Manitoba the past few days. Damage to crops from hail and strong winds range from light to severe with assessments continuing over the next several days.
However, overall good growing conditions continue to advance crops, as well as allowing producers to make good progress on applications of herbicides for weed control and fungicides for disease management. Haying operations also continue.
There are areas within Manitoba that would benefit from precipitation.
