Field Work Stalled Due to Recent Rains

Joe Denoyer - May 14, 2019 8:12 am

Spring fieldwork at farms across much of Kansas has stalled after days of widespread rains and flooding.

The National Agricultural Statistics Service reported Monday that growers had a little more than a day this past week that was suitable for fieldwork.

Corn planting in Kansas is behind with just 46% of this season’s crop now seeded. Usually by this late in the spring about 67% of the corn has been planted.

Soybean plantings are at 7%, also behind the 16% typically seeded by this time.

About 1% of the sorghum and sunflower crops have been planted.

The agency reported that 35% of the winter wheat is headed, behind the 64% average.

It rated wheat condition as 56% good to excellent, 33% fair, and 11% poor to very poor.
