Drought Stricken Crops You Didn’t See In South Dakota
Drought Stricken Crops You Didn’t See In South Dakota.
A tough year doesn’t even describe what this growing season has been like for western South Dakota producers.
“I can’t remember a year like this,” said Dennis Stanley, a farmer from Presho, South Dakota.
The area received some rain earlier in the month, and many wonder if it came out of time.
“Does it have any chance of making it?” said Stanley.
“What we thought we were going to cut for silage is going to make corn now,” said Schindler.
“Even though 2012 was a drought year, it was a good year for us,” said Schindler.
“Our crop insurance prices were set close to $6,” said Stanley.
“Where I farm, I’d say it’s about over,” said Stanley.
“If we go another month without rain, it’s probably back again.”
