Ducks Unlimited Provides Winter Wheat Update

Ducks Unlimited is providing an update on the province's winter wheat crop.
 
Ken Gross is the Head of Conservation Programs.
 
"Went out and checked a lot of fields a couple of weeks ago and for the most part they're really coming through very well," he said. "We did notice a few fields that the varieties made a difference. Wildfire has very good winter hardiness, so it came through the winter very well. Some of the other varieties that were rated fair or good for winter hardiness like Gateway or Emerson, they did have a little bit of winter-kill, but they are still coming up nice and now that we got this snowfall, give it a little shot of moisture, that should really help those fields come on in the next couple of weeks here."
