Seeding in Manitoba nearing the finish line

Most Manitoba farmers will wrap up seeding this week.

Manitoba Agriculture pulse and soybean specialist Dennis Lange is also the editor of the provincial crop report.

While seeding across the province is still behind the five-year average it is ahead of last year, according to Lange.

“With provincial seeding progress, we’re sitting at 81 per cent complete. That’s behind the five-year average of 91 per cent but expectations are by the end of this week most crops should be in the ground,” he said. “Seeding has progressed rapidly this year, which tells you that soil conditions have been good for planting.”
