Crop & Pest Report

Northeast ND (05/30/19)

Information from the Northeast region of North Dakota.

This week has shaped up to be a great week for farming activities after Friday’s rain and Saturday’s showers. I’ve observed excellent wheat stands emerging in the valley. Saline ground has impacted emergence in some fields. Canola is just starting to pop out of the ground. Flea beetle activity will be strong with these warm days. Scout your fields daily. The threshold is 20% defoliation for a post-application up to 4-lf stage (when four true leaves are present on the plant, not counting cotyledons). Fertilizer activity is still busy and spray season is approaching.
