Crop & Pest Report

Northeast ND (06/29/17)

Information from the Northeast region of North Dakota.

Wheat is booting to heading. Growers should monitor scab risk as plants approach flowering. Overall, the small grain crop has very little foliar disease observed. Most canola acres are bolting and early seeded canola is flowering. For recently replanted canola growers, I can still find flea beetles and young emerging plants are favored by the beetles, so continue to scout. Soybeans are at V-2 and have slowed development by the past week’s very cool weather. Iron chlorosis is improving slowly in affected soybean fields. Excessive winds came through the area causing soil erosion and leaf tattering. LREC field day and canola day will be July 20th.
