FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Another week of dry weather has helped North Dakota farmers harvesting small grains crops, though humid conditions late in the week slowed combining.

The Agriculture Department says in its weekly crop report that 63 percent of the durum wheat, 85 percent of the spring wheat, 90 percent of the oats and 95 percent of barley and winter wheat is in the bin. Harvesting of all the crops is well ahead of the average pace.

The corn and soybean crops are maturing ahead of average. Harvesting of the state’s sugar beet and potato crops is just getting underway.

Pasture and range conditions in North Dakota are rated 56 percent good to excellent. Stock water supplies are 83 percent adequate to surplus.
