SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - The majority of most major crops in South Dakota are rated in good to excellent condition as summer progresses.

The federal Agriculture Department also says in its weekly crop report that sunflower planting is wrapping up, at 96 percent complete. That's just slightly behind the average pace.

Topsoil moisture supplies statewide are rated 82 percent adequate to surplus, with 77 percent of subsoil moisture in those categories.

Pasture and range conditions statewide are mostly rated fair or good.
