Government Estimate Reduces Size of Kansas Wheat Harvest
09/28/2012

 WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A new government estimate reduces the size
of this year's winter wheat harvest in Kansas.
     Kansas Agricultural Statistics Service reported Friday the state
harvested 382.2 million bushels of winter wheat. The new number is
about 1 percent lower than last month's report. But it is up 38
percent compared with the drought-stricken harvest of last year.
     Growers in Kansas this year hauled in the largest winter wheat
crop since 2003.
     The grain was cut from 9.1 million acres this year. That is 15
percent more wheat acres than the previous harvest. It would have
been even higher had farmers been able to harvest all of the 9.5
million acres they had planted to wheat in the fall of 2011.
     Yields were estimated at 42 bushels per acre.
