Southwest ND (06/23/16)

Information from the Southwest region of North Dakota.

Severe weather swept through the region on Tuesday, June 21st. Some areas received significant hail damage and high winds were fairly consistent across the southwest. Most of the region is still in need of rain, especially south of I94. Crops are showing some stress from the lack of moisture, especially on hilltops. Spring grains did not put on any tillers in some fields from the added stress. Spraying is still going on when the weather allows. Hay is being taken down across the region with producers hoping for some rain to take a second cutting later in the season. Fields of yellow are showing up across the countryside as canola continues to bloom.
