Southwest ND (08/16/18)

Information from the Southwest region of North Dakota.

Peas, barley, and some spring wheat have been harvested in the region. Canola is nearing maturity. Sunflowers in the region range from the R-5 to R-6 growth stages. According to NDAWN, from August 1st through August 14th Dickinson has received 0.02 inch of rain. Over the same period, Beach received 0.05 inch and Hettinger received 0.22 inch. Corn and soybeans are showing drought stress across most of the region. Earlier this growing season corn and even soybeans were looking great, with rains across the region missing many over the past month; yields will suffer without rain in the near future.
