Warm, Windy Weather Concerning Some Growers
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Crop development continues to be well ahead of averages, but warm and windy weather combined with lack of moisture is concerning some growers.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture says in its weekly crop weather report that storms crossed parts of western and north central South Dakota, dropping rainfall amounts greater than an inch at several places. But much of the northeast and southeast received little to no precipitation.

Development advanced for all crops, but conditions remained relatively stable with hope for future rain.

Corn had an average height of 12 inches, ahead of the five year average of 6 inches, with 83 percent of the crop cultivated or sprayed once.

Soybeans were at 89 percent emerged, ahead of the five year average of 51 percent.
