November 15, 2018

FARGO, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota’s soybean harvest is close to wrapping up, and the corn and sunflower harvests both have reached about two-thirds done.

The federal Agriculture Department in its weekly crop report says 91 percent of soybeans, 68 percent of sunflowers and 62 percent of corn is harvested. All are behind the average pace.

Nearly all of the state’s winter wheat crop has now emerged.

Sixty-three percent of subsoil moisture supplies and 75 percent of topsoil moisture supplies are rated adequate to surplus.

Stockwater supplies are rated 66 percent adequate to surplus, and pastures are rated mostly in fair to good condition.
