Manitoba Crop Report Suggests Seeding is Nearing Completion

Seeding progress across the province is wrapping up with recent warm weather.

Producers are finishing up planting with 95-99% of spring cereals, 95% of corn, 90% of soybeans, and 80% of canola planted.

It is expected that all planting will be complete at the end of the week.

Good emergence is being reported on spring cereals and
field peas.

Winter cereals are moving along rapidly with earliest fields approaching the boot stage.

Topsoil moisture is dry.

Later planted crops such dry beans have to be planted slightly deeper in order to capture moisture for germination.

A rain across most regions would be welcomed. In most regions the soil surface is getting dry due to high temperatures and wind.
