Crop quality varies widely: Manitoba Crop Report

Manitoba Agriculture says crop quality varies widely, with southern areas of the province in better condition than areas further north, all dependent on rainfall accumulation and speed of drainage.

Fungicide application is slowing across Manitoba, as crops grow past the appropriate timing windows.

Producers have done much more fungicide application in 2022 than in recent years.

A few insect concerns have popped up in localized spots across Manitoba, with bertha armyworm spraying reported in the Eastern region.
