May 16, 2016 - Seeding in Manitoba is estimated at 61 per cent complete, with cooler temperatures and precipitation in the form of snow and rain slowing progress over the past week.
Temperatures below 0 C were recorded throughout the weekend. Frost injury symptoms are evident on emerged crops such as canola, soybeans and corn. However, in some areas minimal crop injury is reported, largely in part due to very little crop emergence. Crops continue to emerge; however, slow emergence and growth was noted due to the cooler air and soil temperatures, as well as drier soil conditions in some areas.
