A leaf-feeding weevil, Tanymecus confusus, first was observed feeding on sugar beets in the southern portion of the Red River Valley (Richland County, N.D., and Wilkin County, Minn.) in 1975. The weevil has since caused problems for growers in southern Minnesota (Big Stone, Chippewa, Lac Qui Parle and Swift counties) in 1992 and 1997, and again in Richland County of North Dakota in 2004. A related species, Tanymecus palliatus , is an occasional pest of sugar beets in Europe. Feeding injury by adult Tanymecus confusus typically occurs in small areas within sugar beet fields. Damage is occasionally severe enough to require replanting.
During the 2015-16 growing season, 140,000 acres of winter wheat were planted and 130,000 acres were harvested. The state’s winter wheat yield this season was estimated at 54 bushels per acre (bu/a), which is up significantly from last year’s yield of 51 bu/a. Generally, conditions were favorable for winter wheat development and yield. Diseases were not as damaging as in past years in most regions of the state.
Corn residue is a useful feedstuff for beef cattle. Producers should consider incorporating these fee resources into their grazing and feeding programs to reduce the cost of production.
