Many different cropping systems are used in South Dakota. In part of the “West-River” country it is customary to raise equal acreages of corn and small grain diced in on the corn stubble the next year. Very little plowing is done. In Spink County, typical of the north-western part of the State, there are three acres of small grain for each acre in corn. Surveys in Brown County and Jones County in 1921 show very different cropping systems prevailing in those counties.
