Dry Weather Forces SD Row Corps To Rapidly Advance
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

South Dakota producers say dry weather has forced row crops to rapidly advance to the mature stage and has triggered the start of an early harvest.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture says in its weekly crop report that row crop harvest has begun for some areas, with 7 percent of corn harvested. Forty-five percent of corn was in the mature stage.

The report says 34 percent of soybeans were rated mature, compared to 5 percent the previous week. Sorghum was at 42 percent mature, up from 12 percent the week before.

Topsoil moisture was rated 8 percent adequate, 29 percent short and 63 percent very short. Subsoil moisture was at 7 percent adequate, 31 percent short and 62 percent very short.
