FARGO (AP) -- Harvesting of most crops has wrapped up in North Dakota, thanks to three weeks of favorable weather.

The Agriculture Department says in its weekly crop and weather report that farmers have just about completed the soybean harvest.

The only remaining major crops in the field are corn and sunflowers. The corn harvest is 55 percent done and sunflowers 43 percent, both well ahead of average.

The report says farmers statewide have been busy the past week putting fertilizer on their fields in preparation for next year's planting.
