    We got about a third of our corn in. We are done with corn and we don't do beans. We did not get to plant any wheat this year. We will plant a lot of forage when it gets dry enough.

    What is the world coming to when it’s too wet to do anything in South Dakota.

    Here in NW Iowa I have had three full days to work. Otherwise it’s been a morning here, an afternoon there. Can’t get much done that way.

    Talked to three more today. Two got 95% done and one got 40% of corn in. Did hear from one that two of the neighbors took prevent planting on a total of 12-13 quarters.

    SD is at 64% of the corn crop planted. Way behind normal but considering how wet eastern and south eastern part of the state is I would say getting 2/3’s in is pretty darn good and there will be almost normal stands in some parts of the state. Not sure if that number will end up going much above 70 as I would expect most to have stopped putting corn in at this point. Will be interesting to see what the bean numbers end up finishing at.

    As expected flowers way behind also. Will be interesting to see how many of those get in the ground. To say the least it will be an interesting year for sure. ND was much closer to normal so that may end up being an option for some people??? We will be in SD and what ever it is like will be appreciated and enjoyed.

    What will be interesting is how late the harvest will be. If it is a late harvest and they are predicting a cool summer the corn could be standing awhile.

    78% of the corn crop planted as of Sunday. Better than I would have expected. Agree with Haymaker that harvest will likely be on the later side. Guessing the higher commodity prices gave guys the incentive to keep planting corn later than normal. Flowers were 56% planted which is only 17% behind last years numbers so not too far off. Hopefully the on going hatch is finding success and by November we will all forget about this talk about weather and planting and just enjoy the bird hunting!

    They definitely shifted to shorter maturity corn, so harvest could be normal, I guess weather will dictate. Normally they are after beans first, but since a lot of beans didn't get planted, the corn could get harvested earlier than we would expect...I hope it sits later to give the birds a place to hide. My land has no corn planted adjacent to it this year, normally it has corn on 2 sides, but it was too wet. My farmer buddy who normally plants 2000 acres of corn got about 800 acres planted...about the norm for the area I do most of my hunting. No matter, it will be a fun fall! My pup will be 6 months old when I depart for my first sharptail hunt in ND...can't wait! Was just up there for a funeral, it looks really good...they were spared all the wet weather and blizzards and such...in fact, they are still dry...fwiw, in the areas that did get corn planted, a good amount of those acres will not be harvestable due to the wet conditions...the actual crop that is put in bins will be less than what one would expect after factoring that in.
