Winter Wheat Harvest Nearly Finished in Kansas
06/26/2012

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - The Kansas winter wheat harvest is nearly

finished.

Kansas Agricultural Statistics Service reported Monday that only

4 percent of the crop is left to be cut statewide. Harvest is

running about three weeks ahead of normal in the state.

Farmers in northwest Kansas are close to wrapping up. They had

61 percent of their wheat in the bin as of Sunday.

Meanwhile, some spring-planted row crops are showing signs of

stress from high temperatures and lack of rain.

Corn condition declined over the past week, with 17 percent of

the crop now rated as poor to very poor. Forty-three percent was

rated fair, while 36 percent was rated good and 4 percent was

excellent.

Planting of soybeans and sorghum is nearly complete.
