Plant 19

Plant 19 will be in full swing this week.  The rain from last week, both on Wednesday and Saturday as is so typical in our region varied quite a bit, but a vast majority of the area planting will get in full swing this week.  The northern part of North Dakota that missed out on the rain last Wednesday was already in plant mode last week.  There is still some uncertainty to how long this warmer weather will last, but as we continue to move through May, temperatures even below average will mean at least 60s where as lately our cool days have been in the 50s.  There will be some moisture this week, but the next few days should be void of widespread heavy rains.
