A government report shows Kansas growers planted more corn and fewer soybean and sorghum crops in Kansas this spring.

The National Agricultural Statistics Service reported Friday that farmers seeded 5.9 million acres of corn, up 8% from last year.

The agency said soybean acreage in Kansas is estimated at 4.7 million acres, down 1% from last year.

Sorghum acreage is estimated at 2.65 million acres, down 5% from the previous year.

Harvest has finally begun in Kansas for winter wheat crops that were planted last fall. The state is expected to harvest 6.6 million acres of wheat, down 10% from last year.
