South Dakota's corn and soybean production forecasts are unchanged over the month, and both crops are still expected to be down sharply from a year ago.
The Agriculture Department in its November report estimates the South Dakota soybean crop at 130 million bushels, down 14 percent from last year, and the corn crop at 503 million bushels, down 23 percent over the year.
Drought has cut into yields this year, especially with the corn crop, where the average yield is down 29 percent.
