South Central / Southeast ND (07/04/19)

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

Based on NDAWN, the region’s total rainfall May 1 through July 1 ranged from 4.5 inches (Carrington) to 8.9 inches (Oakes). The region’s corn growing degree day units accumulated from May 1 to July 1 range from 620 to 730. This range is about 20 to 125 units less compared to the long-term average for the period.

Winter cereals are in the seed development stages. Spring small grain seeded during late April are in the flowering to watery ripe stages. Row crops are variable in plant stages, but stands generally are adequate with recent rain. Early planted corn is at V6-7 and soybean is nearing the flowering stage (R1). POST herbicide application in soybean and dry bean, foliar fungicide application in spring wheat, and haying are common farm activities.
