Northeast ND (05/18/17)

Information from the Northeast region of North Dakota.

Northeast ND

Soybean seeding is going strong in the northeast. Wheat is emerging. Most of the canola has been seeded. Soil-bed conditions have been surface dry for the much of the region except for 2016’s extreme wet regions. A general gradient of wet to dry occurs as you move from the valley towards the west. The cool front with a little rain/mist we are experiencing now is slowing seeding progress. We will have to wait to learn if we get enough rain out the weather system to help with the dry surface.

This time of year, horticulture inquiries are strong in our local extension offices, as people want more information to create a beautiful lawn. A new product on the market is Round-Up for Lawns. This product contains active ingredients of MCPA, quinclorac, dicamba, and sulfentrazone. Notice there is no glyphosate in this product even though the tradename includes the word, Round-Up.
