Northeast ND (08/13/20)

Information from the Northeast region of North Dakota.

The northeast region has a mixed bag of moisture levels across the area. There are areas that have received adequate precipitation and others looking for an inch of rain. The crops in general look very good with harvest either starting in some areas or being desiccated. Yields of early harvested barley have been quite good. Grasshopper are still being found on border edges. Ergot showing up in the early harvest and is also present in wheat fields across the region. Bacterial leaf streak is making its presence across the region. Dry beans are starting leaf drop along with canola starting to show signs of maturity (crops are looking very good where there was not any overland flooding). Prevent plant acres is the game at the present with some instances of herbicide drift across the region. Many acres of Prevent plant have weeds that have gone to seed. The early seeded Prevent plant looks good with some producers haying with reduced payments. The hay crop is getting baled with producers finding less grass in many areas.
