SIOUX FALLS, South Dakota — Recent warm, dry weather helped South Dakota crops mature, but the corn harvest is a bit behind normal.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture National Agricultural Statistics Service says 19 percent of the corn is out of the field, which is below the 45 percent average for this time of year.

The agency's weekly crop report says 88 percent of soybeans have been harvested, which is ahead of average and also ahead of where the crop was last year.

The fourth cutting of alfalfa was 70 percent done as of Sunday.
