North Dakota farmers have finished combining corn and sunflowers, wrapping up the fall harvest.

The Agriculture Department says in its last weekly crop report of the season that frozen ground put a halt to fall tillage work, and a lack of snow cover had winter wheat farmers worried about their crops being exposed to cold temperatures. The report was issued Sunday, before this week's snowstorm hit.

North Dakota's winter wheat crop is rated 71 percent in good-to-excellent condition, up slightly over the previous week.

Pasture and range conditions statewide are rated 43 percent good to excellent. Stock water supplies are 79 percent adequate to surplus.
