BISMARCK, ND -

Corn production is down slightly in the Dakotas, but the soybean crops are at record levels and wheat production has rebounded.

The latest report from the Agriculture Department estimates South Dakota's soybean crop up 7 percent from last year and North Dakota's soybean crop up 37 percent. The increase comes at the expense of corn production, which is expected to drop 5 percent in South Dakota and 9 percent in North Dakota.

Both states' winter wheat crops are forecast to be more than double the size of last year's. Spring wheat production is expected to be up 14 percent in South Dakota and up 16 percent in North Dakota.

Good growing conditions are a reason. North Dakota's spring wheat yield is projected to be a record 47 bushels per acre.
