Crop & Pest Report

North Central ND (06/23/16)

Information from the North Central region of North Dakota.

Light amounts of precipitation fell over the past seven days: Minot: 0.30”, Rugby: 0.97”, Berthold: 0.19”, Bottineau 0.21”, and Mohall: 0.26” (June 13th - June 21st).

Continued reports of wheat streak mosaic virus has been observed throughout the North Central region. Additionally, sporadic cases of High Plains Virus have also been confirmed. As winter wheat heads begin to emerge, plan to kill off green bridge post-harvest later this season. This should help reduce the impact of Wheat Curl Mite.

A few minor cases of Diamondback Moths have been reported in Canola. To this point, they have not been reported at economic thresholds, however, continued scouting is recommended. Please refer to last week’s Crop and Pest Report (issue #7) for proper scouting techniques.
