The Ontario potato crop is progressing well with most having emerged or in the process of emerging, a June 3 email update from Eugenia Banks said. Most potatoes planted in early April are at the tuber initiation stage.
Weather in Ontario has been variable with some cool and warm days, the update said. Rainfall has been variable with the area around, Delhi, Ont. receiving an inch last Wednesday and four inches near Vanessa, Ont. with a bit of hail.
“The hail was not severe and did not cause much damage, but the wind roughed the plants up a little,” Banks said.
