Cooler Temperatures Prevailing So Far in 2014

In the June 16th Issue of the Manitoba Crop Report, it was noted that cooler than normal temperatures have slowed crop development slightly.  So how cool has it been in Manitoba to date?

Mike Wroblewski, MAFRD’s Ag Meteorologist who runs the Manitoba AgWeather Program, has created the following maps showing Accumulated Growing Degree Days (GDD) and Corn Heat Units (CHU) to date, as well as Percentage of Normal Accumulation for GDD and CHU, up to June 15th.

Accumulated Growing Degree Days (GDD) – May 1 to June 15, 2014

Percentage of Normal GDD – May 1 to June 15, 2014

Accumulated Corn Heat Units (CHU) – May 1 to June 15, 2014

Percentage of Normal CHU – May 1 to June 15, 2014

Yellowing Corn & Corn Heat Unit (CHU) Accumulation

Last week yellowing corn was being reported in the Eastern Region of Manitoba.  It is suspected that the yellowing is more likely associated with cooler temperatures more than lack of nutrients.   The return to warmer temperatures will go a long way in allowing those yellowing corn fields to resume normal growth and to latch onto the starter fertilizer that’s been applied.

How cool has it been?  Mike Wroblewski, MAFRI Ag Meteorologist, has generated Corn Heat Unit (CHU) accumulation maps showing total accumulation and percent of normal accumulation from May 1 to June 9, 2013.  As the maps illustrate, CHU accumulation is behind compared to the 30-year normal.  However, with that being said there is no need to worry at this early stage.  There remains a lot of growing season left to come and the return to warmer temperatures definitely is a good start! 

Total CHU Accumulation – May 1st to June 9th

Percent of Normal CHU Accumulation – May 1st to June 9th
