Southwest ND (07/23/15)

Information from the Southwest region of North Dakota

Crops overall are looking great. Rainfall has slowed down with most NDAWN stations in the region reporting between 0.2 and 0.5 inches of rain over the past week. Some disease is present across the region with downy mildew in sunflower and multiple diseases including tan spot, Fusarium head blight, and ergot being reported in wheat. Corn in the area is looking relatively good, especially with recent temperatures in the upper 80s.

There have been reports of crop injury from improper sprayer cleanout. Be sure to clean nozzles, screens and filters, more information on proper cleanout can be found in the NDSU weed control guide on page 70 section A8
