South Central / Southeast ND (06/06/19)

Information from the South Central/Southeast region of North Dakota.

According to NDAWN, the region’s total rainfall during May ranged from 1.5 inches (Carrington, Cooperstown and Harvey) to 3.8 inches (Wishek). The area north of I94 and west of Hwy 281 generally could use rain to rewet the topsoil.

Alfalfa has reached the bud stage. Winter cereals are heading. Spring crops seeded during late April are tillering, and early May planted corn is in the 2- to 3-leaf stages. Soybean and dry bean planting should be nearing completion by the end of this week. Early planted soybean is in the unifoliate (VC) stage. While it took 3 to 4 weeks for early planted corn and soybean to emerge, soybean and dry bean planted last week are beginning to emerge this week.

Be timely on POST herbicide application – weeds are rapidly growing. Nightshade weed species emerged this week.
