Good Crop Emergence in Manitoba Despite Dryness

Jun 07, 2023

Good emergence is being reported on Manitoba spring cereals and field peas, although more rain would certainly be welcome in many areas of the province, according to the latest weekly crop report. 

Isolated storms brought significant rainfall to areas in the Eastern region, as well as parts of the Interlake and the Northwest last week, although overall amounts across the province were still highly variable, ranging between 0 and almost 60 mm, the report said. 

Cereal crops are showing rapid development and remain in good condition except for some later seeded fields that are experiencing uneven emergence due to topsoil dryness. Soybean planting is nearing completion with just a few isolated fields left to be seeded. Canola ranges from germinating/emerging to the late two-leaf stage for the earliest seeded crop. Growers continued to monitor fields for flea beetles and “remain concerned that the hot, dry weather would make canola seedlings less able to withstand insect damage.”
