South Dakota farmers are ahead of the average pace in getting their corn and soybean crops in the ground, despite prolonged cool and wet conditions.
The Agriculture Department says in its weekly crop report that 52 percent of South Dakota's corn crop is planted, compared to 43 percent on average. About 14 percent of soybeans are in the ground, compared to 9 percent on average.
Planting of small grains crops remains behind the average pace, however. The report says about half of the state's barley crop and three-fourths of the oats and spring wheat crops are seeded.
Calving in the state is about 89 percent complete.
