Wet weather slows North Dakota harvest

FARGO, N.D. — Wet weather over the past week slowed the harvest in North Dakota but replenished areas in need of moisture.

FARGO, N.D. — Wet weather over the past week slowed the harvest in North Dakota but replenished areas in need of moisture.

The Agriculture Department says in its weekly crop and weather report that the spring wheat and durum wheat harvests remain behind the average pace, and the wet conditions have some farmers worried about the condition of the crops.

But topsoil moisture supplies are rated 85 percent adequate to surplus, well above the average of 59 percent.

North Dakota pasture and range conditions are rated 60 percent good to excellent, and stockwater supplies are 94 percent adequate to surplus.
