Pro Farmer editor Chip Flory says the crops in southeastern South Dakota look good, but are a little behind on maturity.

It's the first day of the 2013 Pro Farmer Midwest Crop Tour, and Pro Farmer editor Chip Flory says crops on the Western leg of the Tour are looking pretty good so far.

Crop maturity, however, is a little behind in southeastern South Dakota.

"As expected, we're seeing a pretty good corn crop up here," Flory says. "But the maturity of the corn crop is a bit of a concern. Most of what we've been in so far is late milk to early dough, and that means it's going to need all of September and it'd sure be nice to get the first 10 days of October without a frost."

Flory reports that the soybean crop is also looking pretty good so far—flat pods are the biggest concern.
