North Central ND (09/12/19)

Information from the North Central region of North Dakota

Cooler temperatures have ruled over the North Central region over the last week or so with periods of light to moderate rain.  The following are some NDAWN observations for the past two weeks: Minot 1.76”; Rugby 1.25”; Bottineau 1.13”; Rolla 1.48”; Plaza 2.26”; Mohall 1.42”; and Garrison 2.90”. 

IPM Scout reports ended in August.  A special thanks to Caleb Cross and Riley Racine on a great season of IPM scouting across the eight North Central counties. 

Due to recent rains, growers have faced some challenges of getting into the field.  Small grain, pulse, and canola harvest is probably past the halfway point.  Some areas are further along – i.e. Southern Mountrail County – where rainfall hasn’t been as heavy in the past few weeks, until recently.  Canola survey has concluded in the area.  Wheat midge survey concluded in Mountrail county last week.  Some other counties are still on the docket. Sunflower surveys will begin soon.
