SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - South Dakota farmers are wrapping up their sunflower harvest.

The Agriculture Department says in its weekly crop report that the sunflower harvest is 95 percent complete, ahead of the 93 percent at this time a year ago but behind the five-year average of 97 percent.

The report says there were five days last week that were suitable for field work.

Pasture and range conditions in the state are rated 56 percent good to excellent. Stock water supplies are rated 78 percent adequate to surplus.
