Nearly one out of every three dollars generated by South Dakota agriculture starts in a corn field. Two of every three rows of corn become ethanol. It’s the most-planted crop in South Dakota, and a strong partner in the production of livestock. Best management practices for corn production, developed at SDSU, are your window to enhanced profitability.
Collaborating with South Dakota Agricultural Experiment Station at SDSU, throughout the growing season, our team showcases local data collected from test plots in a field near you.
iGrow Corn is your unbiased, research-based guide to corn production, providing the latest recommendations to help increase yield, reduce input costs and protect your investment.
The South Dakota Pest Management guides are now available for free. The guides offer recommendations for controlling weeds, insects, and diseases in a variety of South Dakota crops.
In 2021, corn hybrid was conducted at eight location, conventional corn hybrid and corn silage were conducted at two locations throughout South Dakota.

If temperatures are forecasted as being well below freezing, it would probably be a good time to start thinking about cooling stored grain. Cooling grain reduces the activity of stored grain insect pests and suppresses any mold growth that may otherwise occur.
The first step to practicing zone management is to identify the variations that control yield. There are various methods for characterizing soil variations within a field, and among them, electrical conductivity measurement is one of the most-reliable.
