Wheat next to corn is South Dakota's most important grain crop . The acreage devoted to the production of wheat in South Dakota as well as the average yields per acre fluctuate widely from season to season. Nevertheless, since climatic and soil conditions are generally favorable to wheat production, it may be expected that wheat will continue to be one of the most important, if not the most valuable, small grain crop to be grown in the state. The state of South Dakota is divided into six districts with regard to wheat production. Conditions pertaining to wheat production are discussed and recommendations relative to the types and varieties to be grown in each of these districts are given.
