South Central ND (6/29/17)

Information from the South Central region of North Dakota.

The region’s NDAWN stations indicate rainfall during the past week (June 21-27) ranging from 2.1 inches (Cooperstown), 0.7-0.8 inches (Carrington and Harvey) to 0-0.4 inches at the remaining sites. Rain is needed generally west of Hwy 3 north of I94 and west of Hwy 30 south of I94. Last weekend’s cold temperatures prompted reports of frost damage to dry bean, soybean and sunflower from McIntosh and Stutsman counties.                                             

Winter rye and wheat are in the dough stage. April and early May seeded spring wheat is flowering or in watery ripe seed stage. Mid-April planted field peas are in the flat-pod stage (1- to 3-inch length). Corn planted mid-April through the first week in May is in the 6- to 8-leaf stages (V6-8). Based on NDAWN growing degree day units, accumulated GDDUs from May 1 to June 27, the region’s corn planted May 1 is at a similar stage to having one additional leaf compared to the long-term average. Soybean planted the first-half of May have 3-5 trifoliate leaves (V3-5 stages) and near flowering (R1).
