Crop & Pest Report

Northeast ND (06/13/19)

Information from the Northeast region of North Dakota.

Flea beetle populations are crashing downward now.  I can find a few flea beetles foraging in the canola plots at the LREC.  Measurable precipitation of 0.69” to 2.11” came to Ramsey, Pembina, Grand Forks and Walsh counties to alleviate dry soil concerns for those farmers and ranchers.  Dry soil conditions are a concern in Rolette, Towner, Benson, parts of Nelson counties and adjoining areas.  Row crops are at early stages of development.  Weed control in small grains is a focus this week in the region.
