Northeast ND (06/03/21)

Information from the Northeast region of North Dakota.

Producers are wrapping up with planting of canola, soybean, dry bean and sunflower. Small grain fields are looking much better as last week’s rain helped with filling in some bare spots. However, very dry in most of the areas with tough looking wheat stands and bare patches. Growers are worried about uneven emergence which would lead to potential challenges for sprayings and harvesting down the road. Concerns of frost damage in soybeans and talks of anticipating re-planting beans are emerging in some areas. Some fields of sugar beets were affected by wind damage last week. Canola flea beetle populations are high with canola fields emerging. Wireworm damage in a spring wheat field has been reported. Pastures are extremely bare and need rain badly. Producers are worried about cow herds and feed shortages.
