There are times when sunflower producers need unbiased answers. That’s what we are here for. The SDSU Extension team provides unbiased, research-based information to help growers of sunflowers and other oilseed crops make decisions to improve yields and profits.
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.
Join us for more information on the 2021 season on January 26, for a virtual annual meeting.

Soybeans are one of the major crops in South Dakota in terms of both acres planted and sales values. To determine the potential to increase net profit from soybean production, individual producers are encouraged to compare their own yields and input costs with benchmark levels.
As the temperature drops, don’t forget to check on your stored grain. Although most of the South Dakota grain harvest was sufficiently dry this year, we still need to watch grain storage temperatures and conditions.
As harvest wraps up across the region, winter preparation and planning for next year begins. Yield trial results are a key component when making sound seed selection decisions.
