FARGO, N.D. — A lack of precipitation has helped North Dakota farmers make progress on the fall harvest, though some areas are still too wet.

The National Agricultural Statistics Service says about 97 percent of the winter wheat has emerged.

Progress on the flaxseed, corn and soybean harvest is about normal for this time of year but behind last year when all three crops were out of the field.

The sunflower harvest is around 45 percent complete, well behind the 76 percent average.
