LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - The recent cool, dry weather helped Nebraska farmers who are harvesting wheat.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture says about 54 percent of the state’s wheat crop has now been harvest, which is slightly behind the average of 61 percent.

Nebraska’s two biggest crops of corn and soybeans appear to be in good shape.

The USDA says 76 percent of the corn crop is in good or excellent condition in the state.

And 73 percent of Nebraska’s soybeans are in good or excellent condition.
