Climatologist Says South Dakota’s Late Crops Looking Good

Climatologist Says South Dakota’s Late Crops Looking Good

 

South Dakota’s farmers are in a little better shape than growers in other parts of the Western Corn Belt despite being in a later stage of growth than last year. State Climatologist Dennis Todey says warmer temperatures this week will help development of the crop.

Todey says some farmers are nervous about the possibility of an early freeze although at this point there are no signs that will necessarily happen.

He says this year is much better for farmers than last year when the drought hit.
