Another Dry Week Takes Toll on Kansas Wheat
11/27/2012

  WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - The emerging Kansas winter wheat crop continues to suffer from warm, dry and windy weather.
 
     Kansas Agricultural Statistics Service reported Monday that 25 percent of the wheat is now in poor to very poor condition. About 46 percent is rated as fair, with just 28 percent in good condition and 1 percent rated excellent.
 
     Ninety-seven percent of the wheat has emerged, the same as last year at this time but slightly ahead of the average of 94 percent.
 
     Among other crops, the Kansas cotton harvest was 84 percent complete as of Sunday. Growers had also cut 96 percent of the sunflower crop.
 
     Livestock producers are also being hit hard by the weather. Supplies of hay and forage are reported 71 percent short to very short across Kansas.
