Soybean and corn crops are progressing well in South Dakota, though farmers in the eastern part of the state will likely suffer some losses after heavy rains flooded portions of many fields.
Crop Insurance Specialists owner Gregg Ulrickson says several soybean farmers in the Canton area had partially flooded fields last month.
He says if the plants were small and got covered up for a couple of days, they're dead. Corn plants that were a little taller have a chance.
More than 8 inches of rain fell on parts of Lincoln County on June 16.
Ulrickson says most loss claims will not be filed until after the fall harvest, as many farmers whose fields flooded have at least some acres that remained dry.
