South Dakota Behind In Spring Wheat And Soybeans
(KVHT) – As expected, spring wheat and soybean development in South Dakota is lagging behind last year’s pace. According to the weekly federal crop report, 96 percent of the state’s soybean crop has emerged. While that’s near the 100 percent mark from last year and the five-year average, only 3 percent of soybeans are blooming. That figure is well behind last year’s 27 percent and the average of 31 percent. More than 50 percent of the soybean crop is rated in good to excellent condition. Spring wheat is 61 percent headed, well behind last year’s pace of 89 percent and the average of 90 percent. Spring wheat is rated 71 percent good to excellent, 28 percent fair and only 1 percent poor or very poor.
