Crop & Pest Report

Southwest ND (06/13/19)

Information from the Southwest region of North Dakota.

Many are out spraying weeds. Wheat planting should be wrapped up for the most part and sunflower should be complete by the end of the week.

There have been some scattered rain events. Small grain growth stage has a fairly wide range in the region with the early planted crop reaching jointing, some fields just emerging, and the majority of the acres in the tillering stage.

The warm weather has allowed most row crops to emerge. While many of you are out spraying fields, be sure to keep an eye out for toxic weeds like houndstongue and black henbane along roadsides and field edges.
