North Dakota Hard Winter Wheat Variety Trial Results for 2015 and Selection Guide - A1196
During the 2014-15 growing season, 250,000 acres of winter wheat were planted and 235,000 acres were harvested. The state’s winter wheat yield this season was estimated at 51 bushels per acre (bu/a), which is up significantly from last year’s yield of 44 bu/a. Generally, conditions were favorable for winter wheat development and yield. Yellow rust developed at damaging levels in some areas of the state . Fusarium head blight (scab) was problematic in a few regions of the state, but generally the crop was of a better quality than last year, when scab was more widespread. This publication will aid producers with variety selection.

Frequently Asked Questions About Subsurface (Tile) Drainage - AE1690
Installation of subsurface (tile) drainage systems in the upper Great Plains, especially the Red River of the North valley, has increased since the late 1990s. A wet climate cycle, along with increased crop prices and land values, are the major reasons this technology is being put to use. As a relatively new practice in this region, many questions are being asked about tile drainage. This publication attempts to provide some answers.

Spotted Knapweed (Centaurea maculosa Lam.) - W842
Spotted knapweed is an aggressive, introduced weed species that rapidly invades pasture, rangeland and fallow land and causes a serious decline in forage and crop production. The weed is a prolific seed producer with 1000 or more seeds per plant. Seed remains viable in the soil five years or more, so infestations may occur a number of years after vegetative plants have been eliminated. Spotted knapweed has few natural enemies and is consumed by livestock only when other vegetation is unavailable. The plant releases a toxin that reduces growth of forage species. Areas heavily infested with spotted knapweed often must be reseeded once the plant is controlled.

The Thistles of North Dakota - W1120
Thistles in agriculture have a reputation as a sign of untidiness and neglect, and are often found on good ground not properly cared for. However, this unfortunate characteristic is only true of a few invasive species and is not accurate for the vast majority of native thistles which have many useful traits.
