Small Grains Harvest in the Final Stages in South Dakota
SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — South Dakota's small grains harvest is in the final stages.
The federal Agriculture Department says in its weekly crop report that 80 percent of the spring wheat is harvested, 89 percent of the oats are done and 97 percent of the winter wheat is in the bin.
Development of the corn and soybean crops in the state is slightly ahead of the average pace.
Soil moisture supplies continue on a downward trend. Topsoil moisture is rated 62 percent adequate to surplus, with 61 percent of subsoil moisture in those categories.
Pasture and range conditions statewide are mostly rated fair or good.
