In the Peever, South Dakota area, farmer Bob Metz is harvesting corn and soybeans. “We’re going to try and finish the soybeans this week. The crops are better than expected, as wet as it’s been. It’s not as good as last year, but we are pleased with the yields,” says Metz. “The corn is coming off wet, with moisture at 25 to 30 percent. It’s a slow go on drying.” Metz says combines are still getting stuck now and then in fields. “Everyone has spent a lot of money trying to get the crop out.”
