Harvests of most late-season crops near end in ND; 85 percent of winter wheat crop has emerged


FARGO, North Dakota — Harvesting of most late-season crops is wrapping up in North Dakota after a week of unseasonably warm weather and little rain.

The Agriculture Department says in its weekly crop report that the flaxseed, dry bean, potato and soybean harvests all are more than 90 percent done.

The harvests of corn and sunflowers remain behind the long-term average pace.

About 85 percent of the state's winter wheat crop has emerged, on pace with last year.

The report says North Dakota ranchers are busy weaning and marketing calves.

Pasture and range conditions statewide are rated 72 percent good to excellent. Stockwater supplies are 96 percent adequate to surplus.
