SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Rain over the past week brought moisture to crops and pastures in many parts of South Dakota.

The Agriculture Department says in its weekly crop report that topsoil moisture supplies in the state are rated 82 percent adequate to surplus, and subsoil moisture is 74 percent in those categories.

Stock water supplies statewide are rated 82 percent adequate to surplus, and pasture and range conditions are 63 percent good to excellent.

South Dakota’s corn and soybean crops both are rated 74 percent in good to excellent condition. About two-thirds of the winter wheat crop is in fair, good or excellent condition.
