Seeding is between 95 and 100 per cent finished across Manitoba, according to Manitoba Agriculture’s June 12 Crop Report.

The only outlier in the province is The Pas, where about 15 per cent of seeding is complete.

Many producers have applied at least one herbicide application, but strong winds have restricted applications to early morning or late evening.
