SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — Heavy rain in eastern South Dakota over the past week put a temporary halt to the corn and soybean harvests in that region.

The sunflower harvest is at 15 percent done, slightly ahead of average, and the sorghum harvest is at 41 percent complete, well ahead of average.

Winter wheat seeding is 80 percent complete, with 45 percent of the crop emerged.

Pasture and range conditions in South Dakota are rated 37 percent good to excellent. Stock water supplies are 71 percent adequate to surplus
