FARGO, N.D. — Dry weather over the past week helped North Dakota’s harvest, but below-freezing temperatures put a stop to fall tillage.

The National Agricultural Statistics Service says in its weekly crop report that the corn harvest is about 86 percent complete. That’s well behind last year when it was done but ahead of the 76 percent average for this time of year.

The sunflower harvest is at an estimated 78 percent, well behind last year and average.
