Spring wheat along I-94 is heading with some of the crop flowering. Spring wheat in the northern tier of the state is in late-tillering to flag leaf stage. A moderate to high scab risk exists for flowering in northeast ND (Cavalier, Towner and Rolette County) and this risk will likely persist for several days. Other areas of the state that received significant rainfall in the past seven days will likely see an elevated scab risk in the upcoming days. Continue to monitor the growth stage of the small grain crop.
