South Dakota farmers are expecting spring planting delays due to the cool spring temperatures forecasted and the heavy snowpack.
In Mitchell, South Dakota, Chet Edinger says he is hoping to start fieldwork by mid-April, but other farmers are considering a May 1 start.
“That’s about two to three weeks late. It’s hard to say, but it’s looking doubtful planting will have a normal timeline at this point.”
Volga farmer Scott VanderWal says any changes in planting intentions will wait until closer to the final planting date for corn.
