South Central ND (06/23/16)

Information from the South Central region of North Dakota.

Based on NDAWN, rainfall during the past week (June 15-21) ranged from 0.1 inch (Robinson) to 1.8 inches (McHenry). Topsoil moisture generally is adequate to excess in the region. High winds [maximum speed of 52 mph (Carrington) and 79 mph (McHenry)] on June 17 plus hail in Eddy County caused damage to property and fields, especially in the Sheyenne area.

Winter cereals and early seeded barley are in the dough stage of seed development, while spring wheat growth stage ranges from flowering to watery ripe. April-planted corn is in the six- to eight-leaf (V6-8) stages, and continues to average about one to two leaves ahead of the long-term average for the period of late April through June 21. Early-seeded field pea has full-length pods with initial seed development; canola is at full flower with pods developing; and flax is in the bud stage. Soybean planted the first week of May or earlier are in the third- to fourth-trifoliate (V3-4) stage. Expect flowers to be present in soybean late next week. Primary field activities continue to be post-emergence application of herbicides in row crops and fungicide application to spring wheat.
