Weather and Crops
BULLETIN FOR NORTH DAKOTA
By B. H. Bronson, Director No th Dakota Weather and Crop Service, Bismarck.
Harvesting1 was interrupted to some extent the past week
by showers, which also lodg-ed some late sown grain as
well as temporarily stopping- cutting-. In Morton county a
very severe hailstorm occurred on the 18th, which did con
siderable damage, killing- live stock and besides destroying
standing grain, thrashed out what was in the shock.
Early wheat is mostly cut and in the shock. But little
of the late sown wheat has matured as yet, and the most
of it will take from one to two weeks to be safe. Late
wheat is generally weedy and poor, but has been greatly
benefited by the showers of the past week.
Oats and barley are about all cut and considerable has
been thrashed. Both the yield and quality are reported to
be very good.
Some early flax has been cut, and late flax has improved
some, but still only a poor return is expected from it.
Corn has not advanced very rapidly the past week on ac
count of the cool damp weather in most sections. It is ma
turing fast, however, and some of it is now out of the way
Some hay is still being put up, although the most of the
crop is now safe in the stack.
Reports of damage by Hessian fly are becoming numer
ous, and there is no doubt that considerable loss has been
sustained in some sections from this cause.
