Harvest Season

Share
Small grain harvesting continues this week as South Dakota’s Department of Agriculture reported that the excessive heat of the past week has put a strain on the row crops, cattle and pastureland. The dry conditions helped the small grain harvest. Still, at the end of last week, winter wheat, spring wheat, oats and barley were all behind average and also behind where the crops were at this time last year. Above, a Mitzel and Sons combine cuts wheat south of Herreid last week.
