Manitoba Agriculture has released its weekly Crop Report, Crop Weather report and Crop Production Update. Full text of each is posted alongside.
Weekly Provincial Summary
• The continuing warm and dry weather conditions are advancing crops, allowing producers to make good progress with haying operations, and permitting herbicide and fungicide applications to continue.
• The favourable weather conditions also are allowing crops impacted by excess moisture to continue their recovery. However, there are portions of fields that are still showing symptoms of excess moisture stress.
• Strong weather systems passed through parts of the Southwest, Northwest and Central Regions which did cause damage to trees and farm infrastructure. Only impact to crops noted to date is temporary lodging of the more advanced crops and some hail damage.
