Southwest ND (08/27/15)

Information from the Southwest region of North Dakota

Small grain harvest is nearing completion for the year. Spring wheat harvest is in progress and should be nearing completion by the end of the week. Winter wheat and barley fields are harvested along with most canola fields. Sunflower fields have reached the R6 stage with ray flowers wilting.

There was some rainfall over the weekend with NDAWN reporting 0.44 inches in Dickinson on August 22nd. Some areas in the region have received more than 1.5 inches over the past two weeks. This rainfall has helped the few soybean fields in the region and has greened up some corn fields.
