Weather Continues To Slow SD Field Work

Weather Continues To Slow SD Field Work
SIOUX FALLS, SD - South Dakota farmers made some headway in spring field work in the past week, but progress in planting small grains and corn remains well behind the five-year average.

The Agricultural Statistics Service said in its weekly report that only 2.1 days were suitable for field work in the past seven days. Cool temperatures continue to delay germination of seed already in the ground.

Planting progress is 30 percent for oats, compared to the five-year average of 60 percent, and 22 percent for spring wheat, compared to 68 percent normally by this date.

The service said 2 percent of the corn has been planted, behind the five-year average of 15 percent. Twenty-eight percent of the corn crop was in the ground by this time a year ago.
