Hallock, Minnesota-based custom harvester Rick Sugden is waiting for the spring wheat to dry near Gettysburg, South Dakota. The area has a good winter wheat crop. “It ranges anywhere from 50 to 80 bushels per acre, depending on where the fields caught rain. Coming up through here, it was terrible looking south of Pierre, but right here, it’s nice. There was a lot of heat. Grain was 11 to 12 percent and the straw was green on top.”
