SD Corn Production Up In 2011, Soybean Crop Down
SIOUX FALLS, SD - South Dakota farmers produced more corn but fewer soybeans last year compared to 2010.

The Agriculture Department in its annual production report estimates South Dakota's 2011 corn crop at 653.4 million bushels, up 15 percent from 2010. Average yield was down slightly over the year but harvested acres were up 17 percent.

The state's soybean crop is pegged at 150.6 million bushels, down 4 percent over the year. Average yield and harvested acres both were down slightly.

The report says last year's hay, sorghum and sunflower crops in South Dakota all were larger than in 2010, but the millet and dry edible bean crops were smaller.
