SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A week of warm weather has boosted newly planted crops across South Dakota.

The Agriculture Department says in its weekly crop report that the state saw its warmest temperatures of the season over the past week - from 2-8 degrees above average.

About 68 percent of the soybean crop is rated in good-to-excellent condition, and about 70 percent of the corn is in those two categories.

Pasture and range conditions are rated 58 percent good to excellent, and stock water supplies statewide are rated 78 percent adequate to surplus.
