Flax is not as tender as is commonly believed. It may be planted as early as April 15 in most sections of South Dakota.

Black stem rust and stinking smut are the two worst disease of wheat in South Dakota. Early planting and the use of resistant varieties reduces the loss caused by smut, stinking smut can be controlled by thoroughly cleaning and treating the seed.
