Northeast ND (08/06/20)

Information from the Northeast region of North Dakota.

The northeast crops are progressing very rapidly with small grains maturing and harvest has started but in a very limited amount. Soybeans are flowering and look very good where there is no drowned out. Corn, for the most part is tasseled or tasseling and looks very good with the exception of some drown out from the past heavy rains and some wind damage from those same storms. Many areas, of the northeast has spots that look tremendous and others where storms did some damage. There was areas north of Munich that had up to 85 percent hail damage. Scab is showing up in small grains along grassy field borders and some wheat varieties showing bacterial blight.  Sunflowers are blooming and looking very good. Canola is winding down the flowering stage. Edible beans look good where not drowned out. Haying is progressing along with a lower than average harvest and some are thinking of cutting there prevent plant acres taking advantage of the reduced payment to allow haying of those acres. The Langdon REC is reporting grasshopper activity. There are reports of areas needing a little rain, moderation. Sunflowers are blooming and is the time to be on the lookout for red sunflower seed weevils.
