Spring, Durum Wheat Harvests Nearly Done in North Dakota

North Dakota's spring wheat crop is in the bin, and more than half of the winter wheat crop is in the ground.

The Agriculture Department says in its weekly crop report that the spring wheat harvest is done, the durum wheat harvest is 95 percent complete and winter wheat seeding is 52 percent done. Winter wheat is seeded in the fall and harvested the following summer.

The harvesting of soybeans is underway, but the maturing of the corn crop is behind the average pace.

The sugar beet harvest is 15 percent done and the potato harvest 32 percent done. Both are ahead of the average pace.

Pasture and range conditions in North Dakota are rated 50 percent good to excellent. Stock water supplies are 81 percent adequate to surplus.
