Another Dry Week Stresses Emerging Wheat Crop

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - The government's weekly snapshot of Kansas crops shows nearly a quarter of the emerging winter wheat faring poorly.


Monday's report from the Kansas Agricultural Statistics Service notes the state continues to receive only scant moisture. The agency says only 13 of 53 reporting stations recorded any precipitation last week, and most of those got only a trace.


Ninety-five percent of the winter wheat had emerged by the end of last week. Twenty-four percent was rated in poor to very poor condition, with 46 percent rated fair, 29 percent rated good and 1 percent in excellent shape.


The dry conditions did allow farmers to speed toward completion of the fall harvest. Ninety-seven percent of the soybean crop and 96 percent of the sorghum have now been cut.
