North Central ND (06/08/17)

Information from the North Central region of North Dakota.

Planting has nearly wrapped up across the North Central region of North Dakota. Corn has been observed in the 2-3 leaf stage in parts of McHenry and Ward Counties. Soybeans are germinating, and in some instances, have begun to emerge. Canola has been observed throughout Ward, Renville, Bottineau, and McHenry continues with a wide array of crop staging – as young as emerging to as advanced as the 5-leaf stage. Small grains have advanced into the tillering stages with winter wheat in anthesis.

Canola flea beetle has been found in growing populations, especially near and on flixweed throughout the region. Cutworm continues to be observed sporadically. Please refer to the 2017 North Dakota Field Crop Insect Management Guide E1143 for scouting and control information.

The NC region appears to have missed out on the rain. Soil temperatures have been noted in the mid-70s throughout the region. The forecast indicates a warming trend into the weekend with sporadic chances of precipitation throughout the region.
