South Dakota crops continue to be rated in good shape


SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) -- South Dakota farmers are wrapping up seeding of this year's soybean crop, and half of the state's spring wheat crop has now headed.

The Agriculture Department also says in its weekly crop report that nearly all of the state's corn crop has emerged.

About two-thirds of the spring wheat and winter wheat crops are rated in good-to-excellent condition, and about three-fourths of the corn and soybean crops are in those categories.

Pasture and range conditions statewide are rated 68 percent good to excellent. Stock water supplies are 87 percent adequate to surplus.
