Concern Grows Over Western Kansas Crops
12/08/2010
 

An expanding and continuing drought across most of the western third of Kansas is increasing concern over crops planted for next spring.

Gary Gantz, who owns a grain business, says it is so dry in Ness

County that nearly two-thirds of next year's wheat crop hasn't

emerged. The Hays Daily News reports that there's also concern that

winter winds could blow up dust because of the spotty wheat stands.

Ness County isn't alone in the drought. The U.S. Drought Monitor

says currently, all or part of 22 Kansas counties are in the middle

of a moderate drought. Most of the rest of the western half of

Kansas is considered abnormally dry.
