FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Newly planted crops in North Dakota got some much-needed rain over the past week.

The Agriculture Department says in its weekly crop report that rainfall reports across the state ranged from a quarter of an inch to 2 inches, replenishing topsoil moisture and helping seed germination.

Topsoil moisture is rated 84 percent adequate to surplus. Subsoil moisture is 82 percent in those categories.

The condition of North Dakota’s staple spring wheat crop is rated 84 percent good to excellent.

Pasture and range conditions are rated 71 percent good to excellent. Stock water supplies are 91 percent adequate to surplus.
