The race is on to get crops out of the fields in KELOLAND.
Warm, dry weather has combines rolling in bean fields all across Minnehaha County. Farmers say the yields look good considering how late the crop was planted due to spring flooding.
“I think we should be happy. I know there’s a lot of preventive plant acres around, but in this area, I think we should be very thankful for what we have,” farmer Anthony Bly said.
