Northeast ND (07/12/18)

Information from the Northeast region of North Dakota.

As of July 9th, Langdon hit 1000 GDDs for corn.  We are 267 GDDs ahead of last year’s accumulation.  The first signs of tasseling in the region have been observed.  Soybeans are at R1 (first flowers) and R2 (full bloom).  Flax is blooming.  Canola continues to bloom.  Sclerotinia development risk is higher in the counties of Rolette, Towner, Ramsey, Benson and far western Cavalier County. 

Wheat is flowering to soft dough stages.  Scab risk is high for late seeded susceptible varieties across Towner, Cavalier and Grand Forks Counties.  We have observed bleached heads from scab and wheat stem maggot in our IPM surveying.  Bacterial leaf streak is also present in wheat stands which were roughed up by storm events.  Grasshoppers continue to need to be scouted.  Still haven’t found soybean aphid as of 7/9 in the region.
