SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO.com) — There’s an even chance that soybeans farmers won’t be getting into the fields when they’d like to in South Dakota.
Jerry Schmidt, President of the South Dakota Soybean Growers Association, talked about the issue.
But he tells Kelo Radio’s It’s Your Business Show that farmers still have a couple of months for planting.
Also, there is a bright spot for soybean farmers. Schmidt says China is beginning to open up.
China is normally the number one buyer of U.S. soybeans, but Trump Administration tariffs have dramatically reduced purchases.
