SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — South Dakota farmers are trying to catch up with their small grain seeding after a wet spring.

The weekly report from the Agricultural Statistics Service shows that planting of spring wheat, oats and barley trails the five-year average.

Nearly one-fourth of the state reports surplus topsoil moisture this week.

The winter wheat crop that was planted last fall is starting to break dormancy. Seventy-two percent of the crop is rated in good or excellent condition.
