Southwest ND (07/02/15)

Information from the Southwest region of North Dakota

Southwest ND

With a break in the rain over the past week growers have finally been able to cut and bale hay. Peas and canola are flowering and small grains are heading. Crops are coming along well and corn in the area is looking good with recent warmer weather. Powdery mildew and downy mildew among other diseases have been reported and we are still at risk for scab. Wheat stem sawfly was found in the area as well.

We are gearing up for the field day next week at the Dickinson Research Extension Center on July 8th. The field day is split into a morning agronomy session from 8:30-12 ending with a lunch and an evening horticulture session from 4:30-7. Parking is available along Empire Rd/W 10th St or across the street from the grounds at the rec center parking lot. More information can be found through the following link.
