BISMARCK, N.D. — Warm weather the past week kept crops developing at a steady pace in North Dakota, though hail-producing storms in the southern part of the state last week caused damage to some crops and buildings.

The North Dakota office of the National Agricultural Statistics Service said Monday that crop conditions were improved in areas where rainfall was sufficient. Small grain crop condition ratings remained generally good to excellent with the exception of oats, which were rated fair to good.

Pasture and range conditions were rated 63 percent good and 9 percent excellent. Stock-water supplies were rated 89 percent adequate.
