South-Central/Southeast ND (07/09/20)

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

According to NDAWN, the region’s rainfall during May 1- July 6 ranges from 2.2 inches (Robinson) to 11.0 inches (Oakes), with the Carrington Research Extension Center (CREC) receiving 2.9 inches. Corn and soybean average daily water use during July 1-6 was 0.25 to 0.3 inches. The accumulated growing degree day units for corn translate into 1-2 leaves ahead of the long-term average for the current growing period.

Winter rye is nearing or at maturity and winter wheat is in the dough stage. Barley and spring wheat seeded late April also are in the dough stages. Late-April planted corn has 10-11 leaves and is rapidly gaining height. Advanced soybean is at full flower to early pod development stages (R2-3). Dry bean and sunflower are entering the reproductive growth stage. Haying of grasslands and road ditches is a common activity for livestock producers.
