FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Most crops across North Dakota were in good shape despite a week without rainfall.

Conditions for durum, spring wheat, barley, oats and canola were all reported to be at least 80 percent good or excellent.

Pasture and range conditions were rated 25 percent excellent, 60 percent good, 12 percent fair, 2 percent poor and 1 percent very poor.
