Kansas Corn Continues to Wilt in Heat
07/31/2012
 

 WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Kansas isn't escaping the suffocating heat
and dry weather that have caused substantial problems for farmers
through much of the country.
     In its weekly crop condition report, the Kansas Agricultural
Statistics Service put some grim numbers to the status of major
crops across the state.
     The agency said that 66 percent of the corn crop is in poor to
very poor condition. Twenty-four percent is in fair condition, with
9 percent rated good and only 1 percent rated in excellent
condition.
     About 2 percent of the corn acreage has been harvested for
grain, in the earliest start to the corn harvest in Kansas history.
     Other major Kansas crops are not faring much better, with many
stands withering amid a brutal drought and triple-digit
temperatures burn up crops.
     The agency reported 59 percent of the soybean crop is in poor to
very poor condition. About 56 percent of sorghum falls into that
category
