Winter weather making harvest time difficult

Winter storms and fall harvest work are not a good combination, but that’s what South Dakota producers will be dealing with over the next couple of days.  State Agriculture Secretary Kim Vanneman says parts of the state could see a foot or more of snow at a time when producers are anxious to get their soybeans and corn out of the field.


Vanneman says harvest work is already running behind schedule, and this winter storm will push things back even more.

Vanneman says a wet summer, and now an early winter storm, means just getting a combine into the field, in many cases, will continue to be difficult.
