Abstract

Variance analysis was performed on the effect of monthly accumulated precipitation data (May–July) on crop losses between 2005 and 2016 with combined Manitoba and Saskatchewan regional barley grain yield data. A significant negative relationship with total precipitation during May to June was observed. This period coincides with leaf emergence to the booting stage in barley.
