FARGO, N.D. — Most of drought-stricken North Dakota has gotten a shot of much-needed rain.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture says last week’s rainfall benefited development of late-season row crops. But more rain is needed during the rest of the season to ensure good crop development.

Cooler weather also moved in. Temperatures across North Dakota averaged 1 to 6 degrees below normal.

Corn condition was rated 25 percent poor or very poor. Soybean conditions also were nearly 25 percent poor or very poor.

More than three-quarters of the state’s pasture and range conditions are rated poor or very poor.
