Manitoba Forage Seed Weekly Report, Produced by Manitoba Food & Rural Initiatives
In 2009 MAFRI initiated the Manitoba Forage Seed Report. MAFRI staff travel out to scout fields in different areas of Manitoba to provide information on what may be important agronomic factors affecting forage seed crops. Factors that are being looked at are the stage of crop development, insects, diseases and weeds present and any other factors affecting crop growth.
Fields are being scouted the Interlake, Eastman, the Red River Valley and in the Minnedosa area in an attempt to get a better understanding of the relationship of growing degree days and crop development in Manitoba. By gathering this data it is hoped that MAFRI will be able to provide producers with information that can help them plan their agronomic practices.
