WINNIPEG - Excellent field and weather conditions allowed seeding operations to continue across Manitoba. Provincially, seeding progress is estimated at 88 percent complete.

Many areas of Manitoba received precipitation over the weekend which was of benefit to crops, hay and pastures.

However, additional precipitation would still be welcomed to assist with crop germination, emergence and growth.

Where soil moisture is adequate, crops are emerging rapidly.

Weed control will become a priority for producers as crops and weeds advance.
