Northeast ND (07/16/20)

Information from the Northeast region of North Dakota.

The northeast received rains over the past week with some of the area needing rain; however many areas received excessive rains.  Surprisingly producers were able to complete or work near completion with most all in season activities.  Small grains have advanced to the flowering stages with fungicide applications being made to small grains and a few applications to edible beans. There has also been insecticide applications for grasshoppers, soybean aphids, thistle caterpillars and spider mites.  Canola is in full bloom in most areas.  Crops that were “mudded” in are showing irregular growth across fields.  1st cutting alfalfa is nearing completion with some second cut alfalfa progress being made.  Yields have been less than average west to higher yields in the east.
