Crop & Pest Report

North Central ND (06/25/15)

Information from the North Central region of North Dakota.

In the last week the NCREC received approximately 2.6” of precipitation. With the rain events, some areas received hail ranging in size from pea to golf ball size. Many crops, especially canola, were hit hard, with most just beginning to bolt. Most small grains should recover, but growth may be delayed.  In general, minimal foliar disease and insect pests are present in the area, based on IPM scouting reports.

The Northern Canola Growers will be sponsoring the annual canola day tour at the NCREC beginning at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, June 30. Topics include winter canola, canola diseases and fertility. A catered lunch will follow and anyone interested in canola production is welcome to attend.
