Northeast ND (05/21/20)

Information from the Northeast region of North Dakota.

A week of warmer temperatures and a rainstorm has mixed effects across the region. Rainfall was fairly uniform with NDAWN stations recording about between 0.76” to 0.88”. In the Langdon west to Rolla area, seeding progress is still very slow. We are waiting for the fields to dry up. Outside of this region, seeding progress is occurring where the fields are ready to go. Sporadic harvest of corn and canola is occurring along with burning of fields. I observed a spring wheat field emerged in Walsh County. Seeding of small grains, sugarbeets and corn are occurring. With a May 1st planting date, we are about 53 to 93 corn GDD below average. Flea beetles remain active.
