Most Areas Of SD In Need Of Moisture



Bookmark and Share

Warm, dry weather in March has helped South Dakota farmers get into the fields but it also has left many areas in need of moisture.
 
The Agriculture Department says topsoil moisture supplies as of Sunday were only 50 percent adequate to surplus, compared to 99 percent in those categories last year at the same time. The percentages are about the same for subsoil moisture supplies.
 
The department says moisture is needed in most areas of South Dakota to help with the condition of the winter wheat and alfalfa crops and also pasture land. The mild weather has been a boon for ranchers in the midst of calving and lambing season.
