Crops are starting to emerge in northeast North Dakota and northwest Minnesota. WinField United agronomist Jason Hanson says most pre-emergence herbicides have been applied and are being evaluated in fields. However broadleaf weeds are starting to emerge due to a combination of moisture and warm temperatures. “We had enough rain in the Lake Region to activate pre emergence herbicides, but others didn’t. Now, with some additional moisture, there are weeds just under the soil surface. That’s what we’ll be up against now.”
