Spring wheat looks good in South Dakota. That’s according to South Dakota Wheat Commission Executive Director Reid Christopherson. USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service rated conditions about 60 percent good to excellent for spring and winter wheat this past week. Christopherson says limited acreage for both will be the challenge.”Winter wheat acres fell below what we anticipated last fall with the very wet, late soybean harvest,” says Christopherson. “Spring wheat had a tough go all season. We’re anxious to see what it will look like. A lot of folks planned for wheat, it shifted to corn in anticipated planting and now, the corn acres are turning into soybeans.”
