Recent introduction of more winter hardy varieties of winter wheat coupled with new ideas in cultural practices have greatly improved the potential of winter wheat in South Dakota. Basic to the decision of whether to grow spring or winter wheat are questions of quality, protein and yield.
An analysis of the quality of the 1967 South Dakota wheat crop was made from samples taken in 11 counties where both winter and spring wheat were produced. The counties were: Butte, Faulk, Haakon, Hand, Hughes, Hyde, Perkins, Potter, Spink, Stanley and Sully.
