The wet weather has contributed to only half a day suitable for planting in South Dakota and most crops are behind schedule.
Corn planting is below one percent, compared to 12 percent this time last year and five-percent on average.
Spring wheat planting is nine-percent complete, well behind last year at this time when 61 percent was planted. Normally, nearly 50 percent of the crop is planted at this time.
More than two-thirds of the winter wheat crop is doing well. Seventy-percent is in good to excellent condition.
