Wet fields remain a concern in S.D.

Another week of showers and even some 1-inch rains further delayed spring seeding and preparation for row crop planting in South Dakota.

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — Another week of showers and even some 1-inch rains further delayed spring seeding and preparation for row crop planting in South Dakota.

A report from the Agricultural Statistics Service said less than two days were suitable for field work last week. The service said some producers may alter their crop plans because of the delay.

Forty percent of the state reports too much topsoil moisture. The remainder is rated as adequate.
