Crop Progress

Posted: Updated:

Crops across North Dakota got a much-needed shot of rain last week.

That's the report from the US Department of Agriculture this week.

The report adds that the positive of the moisture was offset in some places by high winds and hail that did some crop damage.

Wheat fields in the state are showing signs of maturity, although a little more slowly than the average year.

Winter wheat is rated good or excellent in 57% of fields.

82% of spring wheat is good or excellent.

And 83% of durum is in the good or excellent category as July comes to an end.

Barley is a little behind average in its development, but 81% of the crop is considered good or excellent.

Canola is rated good or excellent in 84% of fields across the state and is slightly behind average in maturing.

As for moisture, the USDA reports topsoil moisture as adequate in 75% of the fields, with only one percent rated as very short of moisture.
