North Central ND (05/16/19)

Information from the North Central region of North Dakota

Planting continues at full power throughout much of the north central region of North Dakota. Most small grain planting is likely wrapping up, or at least close to it. Canola, pulses, and soybean appear to be leading the efforts for planting at the moment. As canola goes into the ground, take some time to consider some scouting protocols as Canola Flea Beetle is emerging. Some of my traps in Mohall and Minot have picked up some low population numbers.

During the last week, 0.11” of rain was observed at the North Central Research Extension Center. Looking at the seven-day forecast, several chances of rain are a possibility throughout the region.
