Northeast ND (6/04/20)

Information from the Northeast region of North Dakota.

It has been a solid week for field activity, planting is in full swing with many areas still plenty wet. The rising temperatures and typical North Dakota winds have helped dry some of the wet areas in the region. Wet conditions have created lost field work time with being stuck and plugged tillage equipment. Producers are using different means to help dry out the wet soils. Prevent plant acreage will be higher than usual this cropping season due to above average wet field conditions. Most of the small grains that have been planted are starting to emerge throughout the area and row crop emergence is advancing from East to West. Spring pesticide applications have been hindered from the windy conditions. Calls to county offices to help identify weeds, tree issues, and numerous dead spots in lawns has increased.
