FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Spring planting is wrapping up in North Dakota, and ranchers are starting their first cutting of alfalfa hay.

The Agriculture Department says in its weekly crop report that farmers have finished seeding all crops except sunflowers and dry beans, and both of those crops are more than 90 percent planted.

About 67 percent of the alfalfa in the state is rated in good-to-excellent condition. The first cutting is about 5 percent complete.

Pasture and range conditions are rated 77 percent good to excellent, and stock water supplies are 96 percent adequate to surplus.
