Manitoba's Potato Report shows over 95  per cent of potato acres have been planted in Manitoba, ranging from 40 to 100 per cent for individual farms.

Planting in the western side of the province is over 95 per cent complete, with some wet fields still unplanted.

The Central potato growing areas are around 40 to 100 per cent complete, while the southern part of the province is 70 to 100 per cent planted.

Overall, planting has progressed well in many areas, despite the rain and snow that some areas received in May, and more rain is in the forecast for this week.

According to the report, the first emergence in early planted fields has been reported; however, 50 per cent of fields still have not emerged.

Producers have also noticed reduced emergence in some wet spots in the field, causing some seed rot.

Manitoba's Potato Specialist Vikram Bishst puts together the Potato Report with information from growers and crop consultants.
