Flooding drastically reduced crops in South Dakota
Today’s Video of the Day from the USGS describes the impact of extreme spring flooding on agricultural production in the Midwest, with South Dakota taking the hardest hit.
The amount of unplanted areas across the state in 2019 is incredibly high compared to the growing season of 2018.
By August, 3.9 million acres were designated as being too flooded to plant crops in South Dakota.
