South Central ND (06/28/18)

Information from the South Central region of North Dakota.

The region’s NDAWN station data indicate rain during June 1-25 ranged from 1.7 inches (Marion) to 5.3 inches (Jamestown), with the Carrington REC receiving 3.8 inches. Our environment has been quite favorable in June and our crops have responded well with good plant densities and rapid growth.

Winter wheat and rye are in the dough stages. Early seeded (late April) barley and wheat are in the early seed development stages. Corn planted during the first week of May has 8-10 leaves. Based on NDAWN growing degree day units accumulated from a May 1 planting date to June 25, the region’s corn ranges from 175 (Robinson) to 300 (Oakes) units or 2-3 leaves ahead of the long-term average for the same period. Seed formation has begun in early planted field pea (see picture) and flax. Flowering is beginning in soybean and early planted dry bean.
