TRI-STATE NEIGHBOR: Planting Starts Late in Northeastern South Dakota

Posted on May 19, 2023
Planting starts late in northeastern South Dakota

Our whole area has had a very slow start to our spring. With the heavy snow and virtually no melting occurring during the winter and a late, cool spring, virtually no field work or fertility got done in April.

We started planting this year on May 1. Half way through the month, we were 25% done planting corn. I believe most operations are at that point or less.

We have a farm that has vested drainage ways, so the surface water was able to disappear rather quickly and we were able to get into the fields faster there than most of my ground.
