Some farmers still trying to get into wet fields

WILMOT, S.D. (WNAX) – While there have been some hints of dry ground beginning to show up on the drought map in South Dakota, other places are still too wet to work.

Dan Meyer farms near Wilmot in northeast South Dakota and says he is still sitting and waiting.

Meyer says he fought wet ground last year, too.

Meyer says the problem is too much ground water.

Much of the northeast part of the state sits in a closed basin with very little rapid drainage.
