North Central ND (5/18/17)

Information from the North Central region of North Dakota.

Warm temperatures held strong across the North Central region of North Dakota during the second half of last week. As we worked through the weekend, cloudy conditions gave way to cooler temperatures and precipitation to start off the week of May 14th. The North Central region picked up decent amounts of precipitation May 15-16 (Minot – 0.50 inches; Mohall – 0.20 inches).

Soil temperatures continue to climb across the region (turf and bare soil temperatures in the 60s F). Small grain planting nearly completed with soybean, canola, and pulse crop planting now underway in the Ward County area. Moisture levels have prevented some field work in the Renville County area with between 5-10% of that region seeded (for small grains). Soybean and sunflower work has yet to begin.
