August 30, 2018

FARGO, N.D. (AP) — The winter wheat harvest in North Dakota is wrapping up, with the durum wheat harvest at the midway point and about three-fourths of the spring wheat in the bin.

The federal Agriculture Department in its weekly crop report also says development of the corn and soybean crops in the state remains ahead of the average pace.

Soil moisture supplies are stable over the week. Topsoil moisture is rated 44 percent adequate to surplus, with 45 percent of subsoil moisture in those categories.

Stockwater supplies are rated 69 percent adequate to surplus, and pastures are rated only 31 percent in good to excellent condition. Both percentages are down over the week.
