Crop & Pest Report

Northeast ND (09/13/18)

Information from the Northeast region of North Dakota.

Dry bean harvest is in full swing.  Soybean, potato and the last remnants of canola harvest is also occurring.  The region picked up 0.5 to 2 inches of rainfall in the last 2 weeks. Much of the crop has been accelerating to maturity, so these rainfalls come too late to impact this year’s yield goals. In terms of corn growing degree units, much of the region is finishing with 250 more GDD units than the previous 2017 year. Langdon REC variety trial data will be up on the web as it becomes available.
