Northeast ND (05/26/16)

Information from the Northeast region of North Dakota.

Seeding activity is wrapping up for canola, soybean and edible beans. A welcome rainfall event occurred over the weekend, bringing much of the region at least 0.6”, up to 3”. A few areas were skipped in this rainfall and are still in need of rain. The water soaked in quickly, and we still see a lot of soil movement with the winds or during field activity.

Small grains are staging at 3 leaf to tillering. Overall, stands are looking lush. There are scattered fields with wheel tracks showing through or in sandier soils, general unevenness due to this spring’s limited seedbed moisture environment. Grain aphids can be found fairly easily on the LREC’s winter wheat plots.

Scout for flea beetles this week on canola as they continue to emerge.
