Sun/Warmth Continues to be Evasive

Cool daytime and cold nighttime temperatures prevailed across the Prairies last week. Many areas reported frost with temperatures dipping to minus 7 oC. Near Trochu, Alberta temperatures as low as minus 8 oC to minus 10 oC were recorded. Very little canola had emerged last week and so minimal reseeding was necessary. Many fields that had emerged showed signs of recovery/new growth early this week (about three to four days after Friday night’s frost).
