BISMARCK, North Dakota , October 12, 2011 () – Warm temperatures are boosting the development of crops in North Dakota.

The Agriculture Department says in its weekly crop report that last week's above-average temperatures provided good harvest conditions for most crops, but slowed progress on the sugarbeet harvest

The Agriculture Department says 18 percent of the sugarbeet crop has been harvested, well below the five-year average of 53 percent.

Ninety-seven percent of dry edible beans have been cut and 95 percent had been harvested.

The report noted that 77 percent of the corn crop has reached the mature stage and 10 percent has been harvested for grain. There was a statewide average of 5.7 days for suitable fieldwork
