USDA: Scattered Rain Not Enough For Row Crops

USDA: Scattered Rain Not Enough For Row Crops
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

South Dakota received some scattered rain this past week, but more is needed to give row crops relief from the heat.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture says in its weekly crop and weather report that most of the state did receive some precipitation, but amounts were typically very small.

Webster received the most rain - 4.2 inches for the week - while another seven stations received more than an inch. But many places received just a few tenths of precipitation.

The USDA says small grain harvest was able to advance with the dry conditions, as well as cutting of hay.

Cattle conditions were rated 69 percent in the good to excellent range, while sheep conditions were rated 80 percent good to excellent.
