Recent Rains Help Winter Wheat Crop
04/21/2009

Recent heavy rains have given Kansas'winter wheat crop a boost.

After the recent wet weather, a report yesterday from the Kansas

Agricultural Statistics Service rated 40 percent of the crop as

fair, 40 percent as good and 4 percent as excellent. The report

says 16 percent of the crop is in poor to very poor condition.

In south-central Kansas, farmers were grateful for cool, rainy

weather that helped wheat plants damaged by a spring freeze.

Extension wheat specialist Jim Shroyer says the worst of the

damage appears to be around the Wellington area, with damage

reported around Sumner, Harper and Barber counties.

Yesterday's report said that across the state, 3 percent of the

wheat crop had severe damage, 10 percent had moderate damage, 29

percent had light damage and 58 percent had none.
