SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Winter wheat seeding is wrapping up across South Dakota.

The Agriculture Department says in its weekly crop report that winter wheat planting is 96 percent complete, with 63 percent of the crop emerged. That’s ahead of the average pace.

The state’s soybean harvest is about three-fourths done and the corn harvest is nearing one-third complete. Both are behind the average pace.

Pasture and range conditions in South Dakota are rated 36 percent good to excellent. Stock water supplies are 71 percent adequate to surplus.
