South Central ND (06/16/16)

Information from the South Central region of North Dakota.

Rainfall on June 14 was welcome in this region, with NDAWN stations indicating a range from 0.2 inch (Linton) to 3.5 inches (Marion) during the past week (June 8-14). High winds [maximum speed of 39-58 mph (NDAWN)] on June 10 damaged soybean and dry bean in Eddy, Foster and Wells counties. Some fields were replanted.

Alfalfa and other hay harvest continues. Winter cereals are in seed formation stage. Early seeded barley and spring wheat are in the late-boot to heading stages. April-planted corn is in the six- to seven-leaf (V6-7) stages, and continues to average about one leaf ahead of the long-term average for the period of the last-half of April through the first-half of June. Field pea is flowering and initial pods are present. Soybean planted the first week of May or earlier are in the second trifoliate (V2) stage. Primary field activity includes post-emergence application of herbicides in row crops. Also, some corn is receiving side-dressed N, and fungicides are being applied to headed barley and flowering spring wheat.
