North Central ND (07/25/19)

Information from the North Central region of North Dakota

Continued hit and miss showers have been the rule over the last couple weeks - NDAWN observations at several stations are as follows: Minot 0.08”; Rugby 0.01”; Bottineau 0.09”; Rolla 0.84”; Plaza 0.41”; Mohall 0.00”; and Garrison 0.85”.  NDSU Extension field days have given me the chance to speak with Growers and talk about fungicides.  Many growers have taken the precautions of making a fungicide application in their small grains due to the increased moisture received over the past few weeks.

Grasshoppers continue to be a part of the discussion with area growers with most observations confined to the field edges.  Wheat midge continues to be observed in area traps.  Fairly low numbers being observed across the northern region of the North Central part of the state with more moderate numbers in the southern part.  Please keep in mind, these numbers are not considered an economic threshold, but rather suggest growers should be scouting.
