In dry portions of Nelson and Walsh County, North Dakota, the row crops caught rain at the right time. That’s according to Huso Crop Consulting owner Mark Huso. However, now white mold may become a concern. “These cool mornings and lower temperatures in the evenings are certainly conducive for white mold,” says Huso. “Most of the corn crop is at blister stage and done pollinating. There is decent kernel set right now, just need enough rain over the next two months to get the kernels to fill.” Huso also encourages farmers to continue to watch for insects, particularly grasshoppers.
