Peterson Farms Seed Eastern South Dakota Sales Manager Cody Olson says corn and soybean development looks ok in eastern South Dakota. “The recent rains should help us get a better fill at harvest.” The soybean pods are swelled up, but were not filling as well as the pods should this time of the year. “Usually you want up to 1.5 inches of rain to finish up the soybeans.” Olson says farmers are also thinking ahead to 2022. “Farmers are getting excited about what they’re going to plant next year. There may be ways to implement smarter tillage practices and fertilizer rates. We’ll be here to help farmers make good choices, including hybrids for their fields.” Hear the story.
