It’s been a challenging year for the Volga, South Dakota area. There is mud and water in fields, but Scott VanderWal says the corn that was planted has potential. “It all depends when we get our first frost,” he says. “The soybean pods are flat and we’re seeing two-bean pods in the fields. We’re not sure what that means, It’s hard to estimate soybean yield.” VanderWal says there are a few farmers chopping silage. “Near Redfield, there’s corn that’s dented. Around me, it’s just barely starting to dent.”
