Corn Being Cut, Wnter Wheat Planted

KSCB News - September 24, 2013 12:29 pm

A new government report says Kansas farmers are harvesting corn, seeding wheat and preparing for fall harvest.

The National Agricultural Statistics Service reported Monday that winter wheat planting in Kansas is 13 percent complete, about even with the 15 percent average for this time of year.

The agency also reported that 16 percent of the Kansas corn crop has now been harvested. That is well behind the 62 percent that had been cut by the same time last year.

Corn condition is rated as 29 percent poor to very poor, 32 percent reported fair, 31 percent good and 8 percent excellent.

Just 1 percent of the sorghum and soybean crops have been harvested so far.
