Information from the North Central region of North Dakota

Rain reports were minor over the last week with hit and miss showers. Those lucky enough to see rain, received it with the threat of severe weather. Here are the observed reports of precipitation throughout the area for the last week (week starting June 14th): Minot: 0.01 inches (NCREC: 0.02 inches); Bottineau: NA; Garrison: 0.24 inches; Karlsruhe: NA; Mohall: 0.57 inches; Plaza: 0.05 inches; and Rugby: 0.01 inches. Bare soil temperatures at the NCREC was observed at 73F as of June 22nd. Temperatures appear to warm in the short term forecast with some chances of rain towards the weekend.

Wind has been the story of the last week over the north central part of the state leading to some headaches for area growers as they continue to spray in area fields. The IPM scouts have been out and about. Some hit and miss tan spot in small grains have been observed. Small grain aphids have been detected in area fields along with wheat midge in some local traps. Neither observation has been found in high numbers, but showing emergence is just beginning. Pea aphid has also been detected in some parts of the state.
