There’s an old saying that soybeans don’t like wet feet. Oldham, South Dakota farmer Gary Duffy is eager to see what happens with this year’s soybean crop. “They’ve had wet feet all season. We’re not sure what will happen,” says Duffy. “The corn we got in was put in the middle of May. It got a lot of rain on it after that. The good spots in the corn are really good. It’s the spots where corn is either stunted or drowned out that will create issues.” A later frost will be critical for crops. Farmers are considering what to do if the planted crop doesn’t mature. Yet, Duffy says there were some farmers who planted medium maturity corns around June 10.
