Cool temperatures continue to delay planting across the Northern Plains. American Crystal Sugar General Agronomist Joe Hastings says cold temperatures slowed sugarbeet planting. “We have more than 3,000 acres seeded in our area, but nothing recent. I think we’ll start seeing planting activity once things warm up.” Rock n’ Roll Agronomy owner Jason Hanson says very little fieldwork has happened in the Devils Lake Basin. “I was out checking wheat seeded after Easter, there hasn’t been anything done since. It’s too cold.” The wheat that was seeded is concerning. “There is more moisture in the wheat seeded on canola ground, but it is warmer on soybean ground. There’s more wheat development on soybean ground. Going to low areas, that’s where wheat has the most root growth and on higher ground, it’s just sitting in dry dirt.” Listen to the radio segment.
