North Central ND (05/09/19)

Information from the North Central region of North Dakota

Last week’s snow storm was a welcomed site for some growers, as small grain planting had begun across parts of the North Central region. At the NCREC, the liquid equivalent of 0.66” of moisture was recorded. Since then, seasonal to below average temps have been observed across the area as growers patiently await some dry time before returning to the field. As I review the latest forecast, it appears a dry period is included over the next 7-10 days with minor chances of precipitation. That will be a welcomed site as growers look forward to planting.

Do you have an interest in grapevines? Feel free to join us at the NCREC this Saturday from 9 am to 3 pm. Some of the highlighted topics of discussion include pruning, trellising, and pest control. If interested, RSVP by calling 701-857-6444.
