Southwest ND (08/06/20)

Information from the Southwest region of North Dakota.

The peas in the variety trial at the Dickinson REC had yields ranging from the low 20s to upper 30s bu/ac. Barley will be harvested soon and due to some late tillers the HRSW trials will need to be desiccated. Rain late last week is making the row crops look great in areas, however some fields were hit by hail. According to NDAWN from July 27th to August 3rd Dickinson received 0.51 inch of rain, Hettinger and Beach received no rainfall, and Mott received 0.85 inch. The rain has been scattered and there are still some fields showing drought stress.

There have been reports of varying insect issues across the region. Be sure to scout and consider economic thresholds, growth stages, and the lifecycle of the insect, remember that an insecticide application may also take out beneficial insects. With harvest beginning be sure to be patient and courteous on the roads.
