Warm Weather Causing Declining Crop Conditions

Warm Weather Causing Declining Crop Conditions
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Crop development is still ahead of the five-year average in South Dakota, but crop conditions are continuing to decline due to a lack of moisture.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture says in its weekly crop and weather report that warm and dry conditions dominated much of the state again. The combination of high temperatures, lower relative humidity and more water usage for crops are causing potentially stressful crop situations across the state.

Corn had an average height of 43 inches, ahead of the five year average of 26 inches, with 80 percent of the crop cultivated or sprayed twice.

Soybeans were at 29 percent blooming, ahead of the five year average of 8 percent.
