ST. PAUL — The pace of Minnesota’s corn harvest remains ahead of normal, thanks to the dry weather.

In its weekly crop report, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said Monday that Minnesota’s corn harvest is 94 percent complete, remaining a week ahead of normal.

While Minnesota’s soybean harvest is now 86 percent complete, it remains behind the normal pace of 89 percent.
