A South Dakota farmer says the thaw of the recent blizzard will delay spring wheat planting.
Tregg Cronin from Gettysburg says it will be a few weeks before fieldwork starts.
“We want it to keep warming up so we get rid of the snow, but the faster it melts the faster the water will run and more flooding happens. The slower the thaw, precious days in the field are taken away.”
Cronin says the latest his farm has ever planted spring wheat in the last decade was at the end of April.
