Soybean harvest starts and stops for the South Dakota grower

Soybean harvest is underway for a farmer in northeastern South Dakota.

Bryant’s Riley Buck says it started Monday afternoon.

“We have done a little, and now we will stand still. I had some beans ready, and most of them are still a few days away.”

He says crops in industrial fields dry out quickly, with corn being reported to be harvested at 18 to 22 percent moisture.

“We didn’t get a lot of rain in August, so it kind of changed in a hurry in our neck of the woods. But it looks like we’ll have a pretty decent crop again this year.”

The USDA’s latest crop progress report shows South Dakota’s soybean crop is slightly behind the five-year average at two percent as of Sunday.
