The continuing dry conditions across Manitoba have many producers concerned about their winter wheat crop. In Fall of 2011, some areas of Manitoba experienced similiar dry conditions. There were questions surrounding winter wheat not emerging and its impact to the crop, as well in the Spring of 2012 on spring germinating winter wheat. The following articles were written to address those questions and can be found on MAFRD’s website using the following links.
