Report shows sunflower harvest wrapping up in North Dakota; winter wheat crop in good shape


FARGO, North Dakota — North Dakota farmers are wrapping up the fall harvest, and ranchers are weaning and marketing calves and preparing for winter feeding.

The Agriculture Department says in its weekly crop report that the only crop left in the field is sunflowers, and the harvest is 95 percent complete.

North Dakota's winter wheat crop is rated 69 percent in good-to-excellent condition, unchanged over the week.

Pasture and range conditions statewide are rated 44 percent good to excellent. Stock water supplies are 80 percent adequate to surplus.
