Crop & Pest Report

Northeast ND (06/16/16)

Information from the Northeast region of North Dakota.

Another soggy week. Crops are showing yellow in low areas from overly wet soil profiles and nitrogen leaching. Ground spraying was a go over the weekend, but now the sound of airplanes spraying is easily heard. It’s a week of decisions for producers who have struggled to plant their crop in the region’s wet pockets as the calendar reads mid-June.

The spring wheat is still looking very clean. It’s even hard to find tan spot out there. Still searching for stripe rust in spring wheat and cannot find it. Cereal leaf beetle larva in spring wheat and diamondback moth larva ready for pupation in canola have been observed in Cavalier County. In Pembina County, seed corn maggots in dry beans.
