Another week has passed and despite May Long Weekend’s rain and snow, seeding has resumed in many areas of Manitoba. Once again, hopefully many producers are able to make good seeding progress while the sun shines over the next few days!
In Table 1 below, cumulative seeding progress to the end of Week 3 in May for six crop types is provided. The last five year (2009-2013) average seeding progress is noted, along with what was seeded in the same timeframe in 2014. (In 2014, Week 3 ended on May 24th). Please note that data is for final insured crop in the ground.
