South Dakota soil moisture, wheat rating down slightly

SHARE NOW

Soil moisture and winter wheat ratings fell a little bit in South Dakota over the past month.

The USDA says more than half of the state has adequate soil moisture levels, down from the end of February, but still much better than this time last year, with recent precipitation likely helping conditions improve.

56% of South Dakota’s winter wheat crop is in good to excellent condition, 2% less than a month ago, but 30% more than a year ago.
