SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) – South Dakota’s row crop harvest advanced substantially again last week, with nearly all the soybeans harvested.

The U.S. Agriculture Department says in its weekly crop and weather report that 98 percent of the soybean crop was harvested, up from last year’s pace and well ahead of the five-year average.

The harvest of corn for grain was about 90 percent complete at week’s end, up from 78 percent a week earlier and far outpacing the five-year average of 22 percent.

Cattle conditions were rated at 65 percent good to excellent, 30 percent fair and 5 percent poor.

Very little precipitation fell statewide.
