Crop & Pest Report

Northeast ND (06/01/17)

Information from the Northeast region of North Dakota.

Seeding is wrapping up this week, focusing on wet areas and dry bean production acres. The past week has been dreary, cool, and patches of misty rainfall. Areas of Walsh County report up to 1 inch of precipitation; mostly in areas which are struggling with excess moisture. Contrastingly, there are areas which need rain, notably Benson County. Small grains, canola, corn, and soybean continue to emerge. Flea beetles emerged over Memorial Day weekend. No disease has been reported. We are nearing timing for black leg fungicide application in canola; fungicide can be applied from two to four leaf stage. Target high-risk fields (see last week’s Crop and Pest Report article).
