North Central ND (08/30/18)

Information from the North Central region of North Dakota

The North Central Research Extension Center received about 0.71” of rain Sunday evening and into mid-day Monday. The Berthold NDAWN station received 0.42”, Bottineau 0.51”, Garrison 0.39”, and Rugby 0.49”.

Pulse harvest seems to have wrapped up in the region. Small grain and canola harvest appears to be about 2/3rds of the way completed in the North Central Region of the state. The summer generation of Canola Flea Beetle is continuing to make an impact; however, not necessarily in area fields, but in area gardens. For canola growers in the area, the new generation of flea beetles feeding on pods are rarely economic. Please note any high population areas as you think about planting canola in the spring of 2019.
