North Central ND (06/30/16)

Information from the North Central region of North Dakota.

Welcome amounts of precipitation fell over the week throughout the North Central region: Minot: 0.62”, Rugby: 0.87”, Berthold: 1.22”, Bottineau 2.27”, and Mohall: 1.56” (June 19th - June 27th). Sporadic reports of hail and wind damage have been reported to crops in Bottineau, McHenry, and Pierce Counties.

Continued reports of wheat streak mosaic virus has been observed throughout the North Central region. Please consider your IPM options for Wheat Curl Mite as winter wheat harvest approaches. Plan to kill off green bridge post-harvest. This should help reduce the impact of Wheat Curl Mite and Wheat Streak Mosaic Virus as we look to the 2017 season. Additionally, some minor reports of aster yellow, root rot, and powdery mildew have come into the station.

A few minor cases of Diamondback Moths have been reported around the area. Sex pheromone traps are a great tool to monitor adult moth numbers and can help establish your larvae scout plan for later in the season. Detection and monitoring information for Diamondback Moth can be found in the North Dakota State University Publication #E1346.
