Crop & Pest Report

South Central / Southeast ND (06/13/19)

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

According to NDAWN, the region’s total rainfall during May 1 through June 10 ranged from 1.6 inches (Carrington) to 4.2 inches (Oakes). Rain to replenish topsoil moisture would be welcome in much of the region to aid late-planted crop establishment. In general, it appears established crops survived the June 7 high temperatures and winds, though there was soil erosion.

Alfalfa has reached the bud to early flower growth stages. Winter rye is in the heading to flowering stages. Spring crops seeded during late April are jointing and early May planted corn is in the 3- to 4-leaf stages. Row crop planting continues, including corn. Early planted soybean is in the first to second trifoliate (V1-2) stages.

Upcoming Carrington REC crop schools and tours:

*Crop Management Field School - June 19

*Field Day - July 16

*Row Crop tour - August 29
