Crop Report, Issue #13, July 30

Crops are advancing rapidly with the warm and dry conditions. Rain is needed in most areas to sustain crops and replenish soil moisture.  Harvested has started in winter cereals, barley, and peas.  Swathing or pre-harvest applications have started in early seeded spring cereals and canola.  Fist cut hay is nearing completion; yields are below normal. Regrowth has been limited due to dry conditions, and a second cut may not be possible in some areas.   For full report see Crop Report – July 30, 2018

Insect & Disease Report, Issue #9, July 25

Diseases: The second case of clubroot in canola this year has been reported. Disease surveys in soybean and wheat are ongoing and disease levels are low overall.
Insects: Overall insect concerns in field crops are relatively low. There are still some  areas where grasshopper levels are being watched. Spider mite levels are being monitored in some soybean fields in the Central region. No soybean aphids have been found in Manitoba yet this year. Concerns over diamondback moth levels in the Eastern and Central region seem to have diminished.

Crop Report, Issue #12, July 23

Hot temperatures and rainfall last week has advanced crop quickly with earlier than normal harvest dates expected. Winter cereals are at hard dough stage and starting to ripen. Spring cereals range from milk stage to ripening. Moisture stress seen in fields across Manitoba where rainfall has been inadequate, areas with lighter textured soils have prematurely ripening crops. Hay yields are below normal and producers are indicating rainfall needed for regrowth to allow for second cut and continued pasture grazing.

Crop Report, Issue #10, July 9, 2018

Warm conditions and rainfall over the past week have advanced crop development. Canola and peas are starting to pod, winter cereals and early planted spring cereals are starting to turn.  Fungicide applications are mostly complete.  First cut haying continues, with below average yields in most areas.  For more regional details see http://www.gov.mb.ca/agriculture/crops/seasonal-reports/crop-report-archive/crop-report-2018-07-09.html

 

Crop Report, Issue #9, July 3, 2018

Warm Conditions and Rainfall over the past week welcomed and has advanced crop development. Herbicide applications are mostly complete and fungicide applications occurring where disease risk high, crop stage correct and stands looking good. First cut of hay/alfalfa compete or underway with lower than average yields. Pastures and hay/alfalfa have good regrowth where rainfall occurring, dugout levels sufficient.

Manitoba Insect & Disease Update, Issue #4, June 20, 2018

Bacterial blight has been reported in many oat fields in south-central and south-eastern Manitoba. Environmental stress symptoms have also been reported in oats. Fungicide applications in spring wheat and canola are being considered and weighed against the current environmental and microclimatic conditions.

Early-season concerns, such as flea beetles on canola and cutworms are coming to an end. Most of our potential insect pests of mid-season have not been detected at high levels yet.
