South Dakota Producers Deal With Rainfall, Frost

May 20, 2014, 10:55 AM

South Dakota Producers Deal With Rainfall, Frost
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Farmers trying to seed crops and ranchers trying to move cattle in South Dakota had to deal not only with rainfall over the past week but also frost in some areas.

The Agriculture Department says in its weekly crop report that the cool conditions have slowed rangeland growth and delayed the movement of cattle to summer pastures.

About one-third of the state's soybean crop and three-fourths of the corn crop is planted, both ahead of the average pace. Spring wheat seeding still lags a bit behind the average, at 83 percent done. Sunflower seeding is just getting underway.

Bon Homme and Hutchinson counties have lifted burn bans because of the recent rainfall.
