Crop & Pest Report

Northeast ND (05/19/16)

Information from the Northeast region of North Dakota.

Low temperatures from 19°F to 23°F reported in area counties over the weekend.  Early seeded canola is frost damaged and is expected to be re-seeded.  Sugarbeets have been hurt by frost, wind or sand-blasting with re-seeding occurring.  Also, a small pocket of soybeans and edibles were emerged during this frost event and did not survive.  

No disease development reports for this week.  Flea beetles are beginning emergence.  The dry weather has been good for farm progress; however, we need rain.  Dry powdery seeds continue as we move into the heart of soybean planting and the beginnings of dry edible beans and sunflowers.
