Heavy rainfall in northeastern North Dakota over the past week has caused problems for farmers.
The Agriculture Department says in its weekly crop report that the excess moisture delayed the small grains harvest. There also are reports of some potatoes and sugar beets rotting in the ground.
The state's spring wheat harvest is still well ahead of the average pace, at 91% complete. Winter wheat planting is getting underway, at 1% done.
Pasture and range conditions in North Dakota are rated 53% good to excellent. Stock water supplies are 74% adequate to surplus.
