Manitoba Crop Report Says 97% of Spring Seeding Completed

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

Cereals are moving along rapidly with fall rye fields fully headed out.

Crops have shown rapid development and remain in good condition except for some later
seeded fields demonstrating uneven emergence due to topsoil dryness.

Soybean planting near completion with just a few isolated fields left to be seeded.

Canola ranged from germinating/emerging to the late two leaf stage for the earliest seeded crop.

Growers continued to monitor fields for flea beetles and remained concerned that the
hot, dry weather would make canola seedlings less able to withstand insect damage.
