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
