Southwest ND (05/26/16)

Information from the Southwest region of North Dakota.

Spotty rains occurred across the region over the past week. Most fields in the southwest could use a good shot of rain. Saline spots in fields are showing through with the dry weather over the past week. While there hasn’t been much for rain the weather has allowed local producers to nearly finish planting corn and get a good start on sunflower planting. Early planted corn is beginning to emerge.

Stripe rust was found in Hettinger on a susceptible variety of winter wheat this week. Be sure to scout fields to identify any potential issues whether it is diseases, insects, nutrient deficiencies, or weeds.
