SIOUX FALLS, SD -
Row crop harvest is complete in most areas of South Dakota, aided by continued warm and dry conditions.
The Agriculture Department says in its weekly crop and weather report that fall tillage is well under way but difficult in some areas due to dry soil conditions. Average temperatures across the state were in the mid to upper 30s, with a few low 40s from central to southeastern South Dakota.
Ninety-nine percent of corn has been harvested, the sunflower crop is 95 percent harvested and the sorghum harvest is estimated at 96 percent complete.
Winter wheat condition is rated at 52 percent in the good to excellent range, 5 percentage points behind last week and 16 percentage points behind the 5-year average.
