Dry Conditions Hamper Winter Wheat
01/04/2011
 

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Much of the Kansas winter wheat crop is in

tough shape following a December that brought little, if any, rain.

Kansas Agricultural Statistics Service reported Monday that 33

percent of the crop is in poor to very poor condition while 40

percent is listed as fair. Only 25 percent of Kansas winter wheat

was rated as good with just 2 percent in excellent condition.

The agency notes that only two locations in southeast Kansas

reported more than a half-inch of precipitation last month.

Producers also worry that the dry soil and the lack of snow

cover on wheat fields makes the crop more vulnerable to wind and

freeze damage.

Dighton farmer Ron Suppes (soops) says only a fourth of his

wheat had even sprouted before winter.
