A week of mostly good weather helped North Dakota farmers with their late-season harvest.

The USDA in its weekly crop report says the potato harvest is at 90 percent complete. Sugarbeets are at 79 percent, soybeans at 53 percent, sunflowers at 30 percent and corn at 21 percent.

Winter wheat seeding in the state is 90 percent complete.

Sixty-one percent of subsoil moisture supplies and 76 percent of topsoil moisture supplies are rated adequate to surplus, down slightly over the week.

Stockwater supplies are rated 72 percent adequate to surplus, and pastures are rated 38 percent in good to excellent condition.
