South Dakota FSA Director Keeping Busy Harvesting

Just because the Government is shut down and Farm Service Agency offices are closed doesn’t mean South Dakota’s State FSA director is keeping idle.  Craig Schaunaman who farms in Brown County has been keeping busy this week harvesting soybeans. He says the yields are coming in different than what many expected.

Schaunaman says their harvested corn brought anywhere from 30 to 40 bushels below their proven yield with a test weight of between 51 to 52 pounds. He says dry weather late in the season hurt the corn.

He says there were no real disease problems but they did have to spray for grasshoppers when the weather turned dry.
