Crop & Pest Report

North Central ND (09/14/17)

Information from the North Central region of North Dakota

Dry conditions have continued throughout the region, with no more than 0.03” (Rolla) falling throughout the region over the last week. A decent chance of precipitation is expected for Friday into Saturday.

Most small grains, pulses, and canola appear to have been either harvested or swathed at this time. For the longer season crops, many (like soybeans) have begun to dry down as maturity approaches. At this time, I have continued to receive some questions regarding spider mites and wheat stem sawfly. Please refer to past Crop and Pest Report editions for more information, if needed.
