SIOUX FALLS, SD -
Dry weather over the past week has helped South Dakota farmers make progress on the row crop harvest.
The Agriculture Department says in its weekly crop and weather report that the favorable weather helped dry soils after a wet September.
The corn and soybean harvests in the state are just slightly behind average. Farmers have planted 76 percent of the winter wheat crop, also just slightly behind the five-year average.
South Dakota pastures are rated 65 percent in good to excellent condition. Cattle are rated 90 percent in those categories and sheep 88 percent.
