FARGO, N.D. (AP) - The spring planting season in North Dakota has mostly wrapped up, but rain is hampering farmers who are trying to spray for weeds.

The Agriculture Department says in its weekly crop report that 1-3 inches of rain was reported in the eastern and southern parts of the state over the past week.

The moisture and windy conditions affected crop spraying, but the rain has been good for soil moisture. Topsoil moisture supplies statewide are rated 97 percent adequate to surplus, and subsoil moisture supplies are 99 percent in those two categories.

Stockwater supplies also are rated 99 percent adequate to surplus.
