Dry Conditions Across SD Continue To Stress Crops
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Dry conditions are taking a toll on crop development in South Dakota.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture says in its weekly crop and weather report that topsoil moisture is rated 41 percent short and 32 percent very short, and subsoil moisture is 44 percent short and 27 percent very short.

Another hot and dry early part of the week gave way to some cooler temperatures later in the week, but rain was still isolated.

The report says small grain harvest continued with both winter wheat and oats. Corn had an average height of 55 inches, ahead of the five-year average of 37 inches. Soybeans were at 45 percent blooming.
