ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) – Most Minnesota crops conditions showed improvement during the past week.

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, only potato and hay crop conditions in Minnesota showed a slight decline.

Corn conditions are 64 percent good to excellent while soybeans are 62 percent good to excellent. Fifty percent of the spring wheat crop is in good to excellent condition. Oat conditions are 66 percent good to excellent while sugar beets are 21 percent good to excellent.

There were 5.4 days suitable for fieldwork, giving farmers time to apply herbicides and harvest the second cutting of alfalfa hay.

Soil moisture continues to be high after all the rain. Topsoil moisture is rated 78 percent adequate and 21 surplus statewide, while subsoil moisture is rated 75 percent adequate and 23 percent surplus.
