Farmers in northeastern South Dakota have most of the crops planted, looking for rain. “It’s been the best planting conditions ever,” said Louie Nigg, a farmer from Peever, South Dakota. “Rains would be appreciated.” Kidder, South Dakota farmer DuWayne Bosse is planting soybeans. “It feels like we’re the only ones left. It took awhile for the cover crop to die off in the spring.” In Britton, Full Circle Ag manager Joe Gustafson said the wind is the biggest issue for commercial applicators this spring. “It would be bad to not get all of this reclaimed ground not get sprayed.” Gustafson expects very little prevent plant acres this year. “Emergence looks great and the crops look good right now.” Hear the latest Crop Watch.
