Crop & Pest Report

Northeast ND (09/12/19)

Information from the Northeast region of North Dakota.

Difficult harvest conditions across the region have occurred due to rainfall and lack of dry down.  Wheat harvest is almost finished, with about 15% left in areas of higher acreage.  Low falling numbers are being reported.  Canola and faba bean harvests are in-progress.  Dry bean harvest is in the early stages.  Soybeans are losing leaves to green depending on maturity selection. 

I’m doing the canola fall survey.  White mold stem rot is at extremely low levels.  Blackleg is low, with a few fields with high numbers.  I am observing diamondback moth chewing on stems and on pods.  The high presence of diamondback moth damage to pods is localized.
