Corn, Spring Wheat Seeding Progress In SD
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Seeding of corn and spring wheat has progressed in South Dakota thanks to a week of favorable weather.

The federal Agriculture Department says in its weekly crop and weather report that about six days were suitable for field work.

The spring wheat crop is now 42 percent planted, ahead of 12 percent last year but slightly behind the long-term average of 46 percent.

Corn planting is 11 percent complete, near the average of 10 percent. Last year, no corn was in the ground in South Dakota at this time.

The report says the calving season in South Dakota is three-fourths complete. Cattle and calf conditions are rated 83 percent good to excellent.

The condition of the state's winter wheat crop is rated 65 percent good to excellent.
