Kansas Wheat Breaks Dormancy

KSCB News - March 2, 2010 12:00 am

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) – The Kansas Agricultural Statistics Service

says the winter wheat crop is beginning to break dormancy.

In a report issued Monday, the agency says about 4 percent of

the crop has broken dormancy, mostly in the southwest and

south-central regions.

More than half of the wheat – about 53 percent – is in good to

excellent condition. About 35 percent was rated fair, and 12

percent was rated in poor to very poor condition.

Topsoil moisture levels show 96 percent of the state with

adequate to surplus moisture.
