Wheat Crop Continues to Struggle
04/26/2011
 

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A new report says persistent dry weather

took a toll on the Kansas wheat crop over the past week.

Kansas Agricultural Statistics Service reported Monday that 44

percent of the crop is now rated in poor to very poor shape. About

33 percent was rated fair, 21 percent was rated good and just 2

percent was in excellent condition.

The agency also reported that about 6 percent of the wheat has

now headed.

Meanwhile, Kansas farmers have planted 29 percent of their corn

crop so far. Sorghum growers have just begun to seed their crop,

with 1 percent planted statewide.
