Crop & Pest Report

Southwest ND (07/20/17)

Information from the Southwest region of North Dakota.

A large portion of cereal grain fields are being hayed due to drought stress. Crops are maturing earlier than normal and the heat and drought stress is lowering yield potential. Corn fields are beginning to tassel and plants are extremely stunted. Some scattered showers fell in parts of the region and much more rain is needed.
