Crop Conditions Continue To Decline

KSCB News - August 2, 2011 8:16 am

The Kansas Agricultural Statistics Service
says triple-digit temperatures continue to put pressure on Kansas
farm crops despite spotty thunderstorms in some locations.
The agency reported Monday in its weekly crop update that 38
percent of the Kansas corn crop is in poor to very poor condition.
About 28 percent was rated as fair, 29 percent is rated as good and
5 percent is excellent. KASS noted the extreme heat came during the
critical pollination stage.
The heat also is taking a toll on other crops.
About 40 percent of the sorghum and 39 percent of the soybeans
were in poor to very poor condition.
The service says about 11 percent of the sunflower crop also is
in poor to very poor condition.
