Crop & Pest Report

Northeast ND (05/16/19)

Information from the Northeast region of North Dakota.

Fertilizing activity remains high. Weather has finally turned warm over the weekend and helps farmers seeded acres with our late spring start. The Langdon area is seeding wheat and early canola. Outside of the area, it is a mix of crops being seeded: small grains, canola, corn, and soybeans. I have not seen any crop emergence yet. I found my first crucifer flea beetle and spring-emerging adult grasshopper this week.
