South Central ND (06/14/18)

Information from the South Central region of North Dakota.

The region’s NDAWN station data indicate rain during the current month (June 1-12) ranged from 1.2 inches (Brampton and Cooperstown) to 4 inches (Jamestown), with the Carrington REC receiving 2.6 inches.

Alfalfa is flowering and harvest will proceed with cooperative weather. Winter wheat is flowering, and winter rye is in the watery ripe seed stage. Early seeded (late April) barley is in the full boot to early head emerging stages, and spring wheat is in the flag-leaf stage. Foliar fungicide application for scab suppression in barley is recommended when main stems are fully headed. Field pea is beginning to blossom. Corn planted during the first week of May has 5-7 leaves (V5-7 growth stages). Based on NDAWN growing degree day units accumulated from a May 1 planting date to June 12, the region’s corn ranges from 175-250 units or 2-3 leaves ahead of the long-term average for the same period. The current corn stages are good for side-dressing corn with N. Mid-May planted soybean and dry bean are in the 2nd- to 3rd-trifoliate leaf (V2-3) stages.
