Information from the Southwest region of North Dakota

Rain over the past week has been variable. According to NDAWN, rainfall in the region from May 4th to May 11th ranges from 0.14 inches in Mott to 0.50 inches in Dunn County. In the past week there has been plenty of activity in the field. Planting progress, like rainfall in the area has been variable. Some growers are just getting started, while some are close to completed with small grains. In Stark County some growers are finishing up small grains, canola, and peas and moving on to corn and flax. In Hettinger County, some of the growers that were in the field early this season are 90% done with planting. With temperatures forecasted to drop into the 30’s be sure to keep an eye out for potential frost damage or issues with imbibitional chilling.
