Crop & Pest Report

Northeast ND (06/07/18)

Information from the Northeast region of North Dakota.

Soaking, needed rainfall fell over most the region in the past 10 days. We still have soybean seeding occurring in the region. Also, have reports along the northern tier of canola being seeded. At the Langdon REC station, our hemp trial is going in this week. Wheat stands are looking very good. Wheat seeded into dry seed beds early can look uneven. We are starting to pick up low percentages of tan spot in the wheat crop. Sugarbeet cover crop is being terminated and growers in high sugarbeet root maggot areas are applying pesticides. For the past two weeks, canola has been contending with flea beetle infestation. A few fields have been destroyed to a level to warrant reseeding. Due to the hot temperatures and an earlier flea beetle peak, early emerged stands were most at risk. The flea beetle numbers are waning, but scout daily until canola is past the 4 leaf stage.
