Southwest ND (06/25/15)

Information from the Southwest region of North Dakota

Areas in the region received high amounts of rainfall over the weekend. NDAWN data indicates that Dickinson received 1.61 inches of rain over the past week (June 17-23), with 1.1 inch of rain recorded on Sunday June 21st. While areas have excess water in the region, some areas could use rain. Dry weather and heat will be well received to allow access to fields, take down hay, and corn could benefit from some warmer temperatures.

The wet conditions and moderate temperatures have been conducive to diseases with reports of powdery mildew on wheat in Adams County, and multiple reports of stripe rust as well as wheat streak mosaic virus are being found. Be sure to keep an eye out for diseases and manage as necessary.
