Soil moistures supplies in North Dakota appear to be in decent shape as spring planting season nears.

The federal Agriculture Department says in its monthly crop report that 80 percent of subsoil moisture supplies and 89 percent of topsoil moistures supplies are rated adequate to surplus.

Stock water supplies in the state are rated 83 percent adequate to surplus.

About two-thirds of North Dakota’s winter wheat crop is rated in good condition. Cattle and calf conditions are about the same, with the death loss mostly average to light.

  Yaaah...we in ND care. that being said...the prediction is flawed....we worked up many, many sloughs last fall...many in the typically wet regions. Snowfall has been adequate...but moisture content is very low.
