Cool Temperatures, Wet Fields Stalling Corn Crop
05/06/2013

Cool temperatures and wet fields are stalling corn planting in Kansas and slowing development of the state's winter wheat crop.

Kansas Agricultural Statistics Service reported Monday that just 17 percent of the planned corn is now in the ground. That is two weeks behind average.

The weather is also slowing wheat development. The reports says just 3 percent of the crop has headed, about three weeks behind normal.

Forty percent of the wheat crop is rated in poor to very poor condition. Of the rest, 33 percent is rated fair, 24 percent is in good condition and 3 percent is rated excellent.

Producers are still feeding supplements to cattle herds because pasture growth has also been slowed by the cool weather.
