Spring Seeding in Manitoba Passes the 80% Completion Mark

Despite the wet conditions, seeding progress was made throughout much of Manitoba last week and is now
estimated to be 83% complete.

Canola and soybean planting advanced, with 71% of canola acres planted and 82% of soybean acres planted.

Spring cereals are estimated to be 87 to 94% complete, peas are 97% complete, and grain corn is 95% complete.

Planting order has been changed on some farms, and fields are getting planted as soil conditions permit.
