South Central ND (09/10/15)

Information from the South Central region of North Dakota.

Based on NDAWN, during September 1-8, rainfall has ranged from less than 0.1 inch (Linton, Marion and Robinson) to 1.3 inches (Wishek).  Small grain harvest is complete, canola and flax harvest is nearing completion, and dry bean harvest is underway (at least 25% complete). The majority of corn is in the dent (R5) stage with some early planted and early maturing hybrids nearing maturity (black layer/R6 stage). Soybean growth stages range from full seed development (R6) to nearing full seed maturity (R8) stages. Factors for rapid advancement to soybean to maturity include early planting, late-season moisture stress and high air temperatures, and disease including top dieback. The later has been reported by farmers and observed in CREC trials (see picture).
