June 13, 2016 - Crops in Manitoba benefitted from the warmer temperatures and drier weather conditions earlier in the week and allowed producers to make progress on weed control operations.
Excess moisture conditions in some areas of the province are impacting crop growth, particularly in the lower areas of the fields. Crop yellowing is evident. Wet field conditions also continue to hamper some field operations.
Weed control, and fungicide applications where warranted, will remain a priority for producers as crop development advances. Fungicide applications in winter wheat for leaf disease control and suppression of fusarium head blight has started.
