Corn Harvest, Wheat Planting Underway

KSCB News - September 16, 2014 7:58 am

Some Kansas farmers have begun planting next year’s winter wheat while others are busy harvesting corn and sorghum.

The National Agricultural Statistics Service reported Monday that 5 percent of the state’s wheat crop is seeded. That’s about average for mid-September.

Corn harvest has progressed to the 18 percent mark but remains behind the average of 23 percent. Corn condition is rated as 16 percent poor to very poor, 29 percent fair, 42 percent good and 13 percent excellent.

About 2 percent of the Kansas sorghum crop has now been cut, about average for this time of year.

A cold front last week dropped temperatures across the state, with light frost reported in isolated areas of north-central and northwest Kansas.
