SD Winter Wheat Crop Needs Rain



Bookmark and Share

A week of little moisture in South Dakota has allowed farmers to prepare for the planting of row crops, but the lack of precipitation also is beginning to stress winter wheat.
 
The Agriculture Department says in its weekly crop and weather report that the state's winter wheat crop needs moisture. Conditions declined over the week and less than half of the crop is now in the good-to-excellent category. Last week slightly more than half of the crop was rated in that category.
 
The seeding of small grains is well ahead of the five-year average in South Dakota, thanks to the mild spring. Slightly more than half of the spring wheat crop is in the ground, compared with less than 5 percent last year at the same time.
