Kansas Crops Continue To Deteriorate

KSCB News - April 8, 2014 8:02 am

Winter wheat in Kansas continues to deteriorate from lack of rain across most of the state.

The National Agricultural Statistics Service reported Monday that 27 percent of the Kansas crop is now in poor to very poor condition. About 44 percent is in fair shape, while 27 percent is in good and 2 percent in excellent condition.

The agency says southwest Kansas continues to suffer through drought conditions that were made worse last week by high winds.

The report says that some farmers are planting cover crops and others are preparing fields. But NASS says most farmers are still waiting for soil temperatures to warm up and hoping for rain.

Corn planting is also underway in Kansas, with 4 percent of the anticipated crop now seeded.
