Corn and soybeans are drying down quickly in SD

Corn and soybeans are drying down quickly in SD

An agronomist with South Dakota State University Extension says he is expecting an early corn harvest starting in a week to 10 days.

Jonathan Kleinjan says the corn is drying down fast and he is expecting a variable crop. Silage chopping has been happening over the last few weeks.

“Yields around here have been ok near Brookings County, but it’s been variable, especially moving south. A friend of mine from northwest Iowa says corn yields have been anywhere from 20 to 170 bushels/acre.”

Kleinjan says wet corn for earlage will be harvested next.
