Rain, warm temperatures spur good alfalfa growth

Forage and grassland conditions for Eastern Manitoba/Interlake as of May 24

Rain, warm temperatures spur good alfalfa growth

Fields throughout the southeast experienced very little winter kill even though soil temperature in the southeast were getting down to the critical temperatures of -12 C. This may in part be due to were the weather stations are located and that many of the fields in the area had considerable stubble left from last fall.

This is the first release for the 2018 Optimum Alfalfa Harvest Date. Reporting will be provided from various areas of the Province (Eastern, Central, Interlake, and Western).
