Kansas farmers are making good progress
getting next year's winter wheat crop into the ground.
Kansas Agricultural Statistics Service reported Monday that 21
percent of the wheat acreage has now been planted. That's about
even with late September last year but behind the five-year average
of 28 percent.
Meanwhile, fall harvest of other crops is also going well.
Corn harvest is 54 complete. The harvest is more than a week
ahead of normal and more than a month ahead of last year's rate.
About 13 percent of the sorghum and 7 percent of the soybeans
have also been cut in Kansas.
