FARGO, N.D. (AP) - The harvest of North Dakota’s staple spring wheat crop has wrapped up, and farmers are nearly done seeding winter wheat.

The Agriculture Department says in its weekly crop report that 94 percent of the state’s winter wheat crop is in the ground, and more than half of it has emerged.

Farmers are still finishing up the durum wheat harvest - it’s 92 percent complete. Producers who have finished harvesting small grains have moved on to fall tillage and fertilizer applications.

The harvest of late-season crops continues, with both the potato and sugar beet harvests nearing completion, ahead of the average pace.

Pasture and range conditions are rated 78 percent good to excellent, and stockwater supplies are 98 percent adequate to surplus.
