Crop & Pest Report

Northeast ND (05/10/18)

Information from the Northeast region of North Dakota.

All counties have seeding activity as of last Thursday. Small grains, corn, sugarbeets and canola are going in. Soybean seeding has just started in the region. Farmers are carefully choosing how to spend their dollars on seed, fertilizer and chemical. Much of the region is reporting dry conditions and tough pasture conditions. 2017 dry soil woes in Benson County have gurgled over to this spring. Other areas have received rainfall or have leftover moisture from the fall, notably in the Northwood, Michigan, and Hensel areas.
