Crop & Pest Report

Northeast ND (06/15/17)

Information from the Northeast region of North Dakota.

Severe weather combed across most of my region’s counties on Friday and Tuesday causing crop damage and farm site damage.  Early indications are reporting that farmers are trying to reseed acres.  However, seed supply is low especially for dry bean acres which have been in short supply all season.  Calendar-wise, late-seeded crops have less yield potential and there are risks with making maturity in long-season soybeans.  Aside from severe weather, the past week’s warm temperatures was conducive to crop growth and development.  Wheat is jointing, early seeded canola at the first stages of crop bolting, and soybeans are at the unifoliate stage.  Other fields are just emerging; and with the replanting activity, our region will continue to contain a range of crop stages.  Flea beetle activity is nearing its end.  No other changes in insect or disease pressure to report.
