Row Crop Harvest Beginning In SD

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — South Dakota’s corn silage harvest has started in some areas and farmers are preparing equipment for row crop harvest.

Corn at the dough stage was 98 percent, just ahead last year and the 94 percent average. Corn at the dented stage is behind average but about where the crop was last year.

Soybeans dropping leaves were at 28 percent, well behind 74 percent last year and the 41 percent average.

The third cutting of alfalfa was 80 percent complete, ahead of last year and average.
