Kan. Winter Wheat Crop Progress Lags Behind

KSCB News - April 27, 2010 12:00 am

A new report shows the Kansas winter wheat

crop in good shape but progressing slightly behind the normal rate

for late April.

Kansas Agricultural Statistics Service reported Monday just that

1 percent of the wheat has headed, compared with an average of

about 8 percent.

The crop condition report is mostly upbeat in the wake of rain

last week. The report rates the wheat condition as 14 percent

excellent and 59 percent good. About 23 percent was in fair

condition with just 4 percent in poor to very poor shape.
