Northeast ND (07/23/15)

Information from the Northeast region of North Dakota.

Scab is showing up in the wheat and barley fields in our region.  Much of the stripe rust has gone into the black teliospore stage; however at the LREC, we still have some yellow-orange pustules present in our small grains.  Also, a few leaf rust pustules can be found sporadically on these plants.  Stripe rust causes the flag leaf to dry -own rapidly (see photo).

Corn growth has been excellent in last few weeks.  Corn is starting to tassel in the southern and valley parts of my region.  Meanwhile, we have water-affected soybean fields which can be found in high rainfall areas.  These fields look chlorotic and are developing slowly.  Outside these areas, we have a lush late-July soybean crop coming along. 

We finished up our on-station and off-station field days on Tuesday. Thanks for all the support for our research and extension programs!
