Recent Rains Helping Pastures
06/10/2014
 

Recent rains across Kansas are greening up the state's parched pastures and helping spring-planted crops.
 
     But the improved soil moisture conditions have come too late to help most of the state's drought-stricken winter wheat crop as harvest nears.
 
     The National Agricultural Statistics Service reported Monday that 63 percent of the wheat in Kansas is in poor to very poor condition. Twenty-six percent of the crop is rate in fair condition, with 10 percent rated good and 1 percent rated excellent.
 
     The agency says about 13 percent of the wheat crop has now matured.
 
     Corn condition is rated as 8 percent poor to very poor, 45 percent fair, 42 percent good and 5 percent excellent.
 
     Pastures have improved, but 38 percent are still rated as poor or very poor.
