The western leg of the Pro Farmer Crop Tour moves from Sioux Falls, South Dakota to Grand Island, Nebraska today. “We’re going through an area that has been dry for most of the season,” reports tour lead Chip Flory. “The expectation is that we will run into some areas that have had problems growing a crop this year.” The crop in southeast South Dakota and northeast Nebraska was planted on a timely basis. “The corn crop had the opportunity to put on yield early this year and it did it. The question is now how much of the yield has the corn been able to hold onto.”
