Winter wheat in good shape in South Dakota as winter ends

March 30, 2018

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — South Dakota’s winter wheat crop appears to be in good shape as winter nears its end.

The federal Agriculture Department says in its monthly crop report that 80 percent of the wheat crop is rated in fair or good condition.

Topsoil moisture supplies statewide are rated about two-thirds adequate, but subsoil moisture is only about half in that category.
