BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Corn production estimates are on different paths in the Dakotas, but farmers in both states say they’re pleased with their crops.

The latest federal estimates peg South Dakota’s crop at a record 812 million bushels — up 6 percent from the September estimate and up 52 percent from last year. On the flip side, North Dakota’s corn crop is now estimated at 375 million bushels, down 6 percent from September and down 11 percent from last year.

North Dakota farmers enjoyed a record year in 2012 while many other states dealt with devastating drought. This year, many of those states including South Dakota are seeing a rebound in the corn.

In North Dakota, adverse weather has cut into production this year, though farmers say they’re still happy with the crop.
