Dry conditions in South Dakota are worrying everyone from farmers and ranchers to fireworks dealers. Extension Service crops specialist Larry Wagner in Sioux Falls tells the Yankton Daily Press & Dakotan that South Dakota isn't facing drought like some states, but crops will suffer if the region doesn't get some decent rain soon.
