Corn Planting Moving Forward

KSCB News - April 13, 2010 12:00 am

A new report says optimal weather

conditions have improved the condition of the Kansas winter wheat

crop and let farmers plant more corn.

Kansas Agricultural Statistics Service issued its weekly

crop-weather report Monday.

The report rated wheat condition as 13 percent excellent and 56

percent good. About 26 percent was in fair shape, with 5 percent in

poor to very poor condition.

The warm temperatures and breezy conditions allowed fields to

dry and farmers to get into them to work. About 7 percent of the

Kansas corn crop has now been planted.
