Mixed results for SD spring wheat


Spring wheat harvest has mixed results so far in South Dakota.

In the eastern part of the state, Anthony Bly with South Dakota State University Extension says there’s not much to harvest. But in western South Dakota, custom harvester Jim Deibert says yields are good.

“40 bushels/acre is pretty standard, but this year, the crop is about 60 bushels/acre. I don’t know what the protein was, but it was weighing 61 pounds.
