SIOUX FALLS, South Dakota — The winter wheat harvest in South Dakota is nearly wrapped up.

The weekly crop report from the federal Agriculture Department says 94 percent of the winter wheat is in the bin. That's ahead of 93 percent at the same time last year but behind the five-year average of 98 percent.

The report says rain and humidity last week slowed the small grain harvest, but above-average temperatures in the eastern part of the state aided the development of row crops.

Pasture and range conditions in South Dakota are rated 67 percent good to excellent.
