At Frederick, South Dakota, there is some nitrogen deficiency in fields. Yet, Frederick Seed owner Rich Achen says there could be fairly strong yields. “On a lot of these fields, we’re at early dent for the majority of the corn. That corn was planted around May 10 to May 15,” says Achen. “I’d say we need another 30 days to hit black layer and need heat to finish the crop out.” Tuesday’s leg of the RRFN Crop Tour, presented by Pioneer, ended with positive news. Groten farmer Nick Strom likes what he is seeing so far. “I know a lot of people had problems this year, but our area is looking good. The corn is probably going to be one of the best we’ve ever had.” Take a closer look at the corn near Groton and Frederick, SD.
