Lack of Rain Last Week Hampers Corn
09/25/2012
 

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Kansas farmers have planted about 17

percent of next year's winter wheat crop while bringing in this

year's corn crop far faster than normal.

Kansas Agricultural Statistics Service said in its weekly update

Monday that wheat seeding is on pace with both last year and the

average for this point in the season. About 2 percent of the wheat

has already emerged.

Meanwhile, the corn harvest reached the 64 percent mark as of

Sunday, about three weeks ahead of the five-year average. Just 5

percent of the corn still needs to mature in the field.

A lack of rain over the past week slowed the progress of other

crops. The Kansas agency says about 67 percent of both the soybean

and sorghum crops are in poor to very poor condition.
