Rye production in South Dakota does not constitute a major part of the state's agricultural activity; however, it is a crop which has a great potential to farmers who specialize in its production. The favorable climatic conditions and the absences of serious disease problems have produced a stabilized yield pattern throughout the years. Under conditions of good soil and water management yields of 30 bushels per acre are not uncommon. Additional benefits from rye production come from weed control and soil conservation.
