Farmers Getting Jump On Corn Harvest

KSCB News - September 14, 2010 12:00 am

Warm, dry weather has given Kansas farmers

a one-week jump on getting their corn crop harvested.

Kansas Agricultural Statistics Service reported Monday the corn

harvest is 28 percent complete. That’s twice the amount of corn

that’s usually in the bin at this point in the season.

Harvest is also under way for the state’s sorghum crop. KASS

reports 3 percent of the sorghum has been cut.

Kansas farmers have also begun planting next year’s winter wheat

crop.

The agency reports about 5 percent of the winter wheat has been

seeded so far.
