VIDEO: What can damaged seeds do to bean crops at planting?

We know damage to an edible bean seed’s coat can cost you at harvest, but what about the cost of damaged seeds at planting time?

Farm production advisor Dennis Lange, of Manitoba Agriculture, Food and Rural Initiatives’ GO centre at Altona, considered that topic among others at the Crop Diagnostic School, in this sixth of a series of nine videos hosted for the Manitoba Co-operator by Crops Guide editor Gord Gilmour.

MAFRI and the University of Manitoba host the Crop Diagnostic School each year at the U of M’s Ian M. Morrison Research Farm at Carman. Farmers and agronomists can attend the one-day hands-on school, which runs for two weeks in July. Watch this site for more video highlights. Time: 0:36
