South Dakota wheat condition range widens

The USDA says the divergence in South Dakota’s winter wheat condition ratings widened during February.

41% of the crop is called good, a jump of 9% from January, with the fair category at 43%, a decline of 4%, while 21% is rated poor to very poor, an increase of 6%.

Topsoil moisture levels were steady across the board and subsoil improved slightly, but most of the state remains short to very short.

The USDA’s weekly crop progress and condition reports resume in April.
