After a June 5 hail storm, farmers in Griggs County, North Dakota have been able to replant some of the soybean crop. Megan Vig, NDSU Extension agent in Griggs County, says beans with two cotyledon leaves ended up as sticks. “The hail damage was most noticeable 14 miles west of Cooperstown, but also stretched east to the Hatton and Reynolds areas. Most of the corn should be okay, as long as the growing point was underneath the soil.” This growing season, rainfall in the county has been spotty. “The northwest corner could use more moisture. In the central/eastern part, farmers are still battling wet conditions to finish bean planting.”
