The winter wheat harvest and the development of row crops continue to lag behind last year's pace in South Dakota.
The Agriculture Department says in its weekly crop and weather report that the past week was marked by continued below-normal temperatures.
Eighty-seven percent of the state's winter wheat crop is in the bin, compared with 98 percent on average and 100 percent last year.
The report says the late-season soybean and sunflower crops in South Dakota both are behind last year's pace and the average in their development. Corn also is behind last year's pace but ahead of the long-term average.
