Southwest ND (06/10/21)

Information from the Southwest region of North Dakota

Variability would be the best descriptor for SW ND. A wide range of crop conditions from varying drought stress as well as from flooding and saturated soils. Differences in tillage practices, previous crop residue, and rainfall account for some of major visual differences. Wheat is coming along nicely in the Dickinson area. A majority of sunflowers have been planted in the region and herbicide applications have been active on days that the wind has allowed for. According to NDAWN from May 31st to June 7th Dickinson received 0.28 inch, Beach with 0.16, Amidon with 0.25, Bowman 0.54, Dunn 0.27, Hettinger at 0.03, Mott 0.17, and Mandan with 0.02.
