North Central ND (06/15/17)

Information from the North Central region of North Dakota.

Parts of the NC region appears to have received a trace to 0.20 inches rain through the morning of June 13th.  Rain chances continue to be part of the forecast over the next few days with temperatures expected to be in the 70s.  Currently, the scab disease forecast remains at a low risk.  With precipitation chances possible over the next week, the risk model may be of interest to some in the region.   

Planting appears to be completed around the North Central region.  Corn has been observed in the 2-3 leaf stage in the North Central counties. Soybeans have been observed from the cotyledon stage to the 1 leaf stage.  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. 

Over the next few weeks, Canola Flea Beetle will be less of a threat as canola continues to grow.  Typically, economic damage becomes less likely after the 4th leaf stage as canola becomes more vigorous to overcome beetle herbivory.
