SIOUX FALLS, SD -
Dry weather is stressing some crops and pastures in South Dakota, but mild temperatures have lessened the impact.
The Agriculture Department says in its latest crop and weather report that row crop development is progressing on track, and livestock conditions remain mostly in the good to excellent range despite the dry pastures.
Soil moisture conditions in South Dakota have dropped only slightly despite the continued shortage of rainfall in some areas. Topsoil moisture statewide is rated 64 percent adequate to surplus, just 1 percentage point below the previous week.
