  • Dennis Lange
    Provincial Pulse Specialist, Manitoba Agriculture

Soybean acres continue to expand across the province. 2017 saw Manitoba producers plant almost 2.3 million acres of soybeans. Manitoba growers have many new varieties and herbicide systems to deal with this year. From Roundup Ready to Extend soybeans, Conventional soybeans, Liberty tolerant soybeans and in the near future Enlist soybeans, all have potential to be grown within the province. Dennis will be reviewing the 2017 season and will be discussing how these new systems have been working for Manitoba growers.
