For spring wheat, USDA increased the size of the spring wheat yields from a month ago for North Dakota and South Dakota. North Dakota is expected to average 30 bushels per acre. That’s two bushels more than in the July report, but nearly 20 bushels below last year. Minnesota’s spring wheat is forecast to average 42 bushels per acre, an increase of two bushels from last month. A year ago, Minnesota had an average yield of 53 bushels per acre. South Dakota’s spring wheat yield is projected at just 24 bushels per acre, down one bushel from July. That’s nearly half the yield seen a year ago in South Dakota.
