Southwest ND (07/05/18)

Information from the Southwest region of North Dakota.

With more rain falling across the region in the past week, the risk for fusarium head blight has increased. Most small grains in the region are headed out, while some of the later planted acres are still in boot. Canola continues to flower throughout the region. Many are still cutting hay across southwest North Dakota. For those that were able to get an early cutting, and have caught decent rains, a second cutting of hay will be coming soon. While many have received adequate rainfall across the region, there are still some areas in need of moisture. According to NDAWN in the past week from June 27th to July 1st Dickinson received 1.35 inch of rain, Beach received 0.57 inch, 0.92 inch in Bowman, 0.49 inch in Hettinger, 0.96 inch in Mott, and 2.42 inch at the Dunn County NDAWN station. For those that have received excess moisture, the weather has delayed haying, however after the weather conditions last year no one is complaining about rain.
