One-fourth of SD corn and beans “poor”

One-fourth of South Dakota’s corn crop was in poor condition as of Sunday, with 50% fair. Only about one-fourth of the corn is “good.”

Soybean condition ratings are very similar to corn.  Soybeans blooming reached 19%, well behind last year but close to the average.

One-percent of winter wheat is harvested with most of the crop in poor to fair shape. The spring wheat crop is in similar shape.

Forty-four percent of oats are in poor shape. Sorghum condition is mostly fair to good. Pasture and range conditions are still in the basement, with nearly 75% in very poor to poor shape.
