SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — South Dakota's winter wheat harvest is complete, and the rest of the small grains harvest is wrapping up.
The federal Agriculture Department says in its weekly crop report that 91 percent of the spring wheat is harvested, along with 96 percent of the oats.
Development of the corn and soybean crops in the state remains ahead of the average pace.
Soil moisture supplies continue on a downward trend. Topsoil moisture is rated 60 percent adequate to surplus, with 59 percent of subsoil moisture in those categories.
Pasture and range conditions statewide remain mostly rated fair or good.
