The Agriculture Department says in its weekly crop and weather report that the past week was marked by continued below-normal temperatures.

Eighty-seven percent of the state's winter wheat crop is in the bin, compared with 98 percent on average and 100 percent last year.

The report says the late-season corn, soybean and sunflower crops in South Dakota all are behind last year's pace and the average in their development.
