North Dakota Crops, Pastures In Good Shape


(Bismarck, ND)  —  A new report rates the condition of all major crops in North Dakota as “good.”  The National Agricultural Statistics Service rates fewer than ten percent of all crops except sugar beets as poor or very poor.  Fifteen percent of the sugar beet crop has low ratings.  Pasture and range conditions statewide are rated 86-percent good to excellent.  The U.S. Drought Monitor map showed drought conditions have passed in all but the very southeaster tip of the state in Richland County.
