South Dakota Harvest At Normal

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — South Dakota’s soybean, corn and sorghum harvest is about where it normally is this time of year, despite the recent rain and snow in some parts.

The National Agricultural Statistics Service says the soybean harvest is around 97 percent complete. Roughly 79 percent of the corn crop is out of the field. And the sorghum harvest is about 81 percent complete.

All three crops were out of the field by this time last year.

The sunflower harvest is about 52 percent complete, well behind average.
