South Central/East ND (05/04/17)

Information from the South Central/East region of North Dakota.

South-Central/East ND

The geographic area (16 counties) covered by this report includes a northern border of Sheridan County to Griggs County southward to Sargent County and west to Emmons County.

According to NDAWN, the region received from 0.6 inches (Harvey) to 2.3 inches (Cooperstown) of rain during April. Currently, topsoil moisture is adequate and wet areas commonly exist in many fields. Alfalfa regrowth is up to 4-5 inches in height. Winter cereals are tillering. Scattered fields of spring wheat and barley were seeded prior to Easter, and plants are emerging (see picture). However, general planting of cool-season crops (small grain, field pea and corn) in the region began over the past weekend.
