Winter Wheat Planting On Schedule
09/25/2012

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.
