Durum wheat harvest, winter wheat planting wrapping up in ND; corn harvest still well behind


FARGO, North Dakota — North Dakota farmers are wrapping up the harvest of durum wheat and the planting of winter wheat.

The Agriculture Department says in its weekly crop report that both activities are 97 percent complete, after a week of dry and unseasonably warm weather.

The harvests of many late-season crops including soybeans and potatoes also are nearing completion, though the corn and sunflower harvests still lag well behind the average pace.

Pasture and range conditions in the state are rated 73 percent good to excellent. Stockwater supplies are rated 97 percent adequate to surplus.
