Pro Farmer Crop Tour travels through South Dakota

The Pro Farmer Crop Tour is now onto its second day. Yesterday they kicked off with their western leg in South Dakota.

Mount Rushmore State’s corn results came in with the average yield coming in at 118.45 and the average soybean pod count in a 3 by 3-foot square was 871.40.

While some fields looked exactly as scouts expected, other fields showed some devastating surprises. Ag Market consulting’s Betsy Jibben has a report on what they found along one of the routes.

Zaner Ag Hedge’s Ted Seifried spoke with RFD-TV’s own Suzanne Alexander about the results from the first day, how things are looking now, and if things were what he was expecting.
