Warm January Zaps Soil Moisture for Farmers
01/31/2012
 

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A new report says January's warm, dry and

windy weather in Kansas is sapping soil moisture and hurting the

state's winter wheat crop.

But in its report Monday, Kansas Agricultural Statistics Service

also says the unusually mild weather is helping livestock producers

as calving begins and helping stretch the hay and forage supplies.

The condition of the winter wheat crop declined this month, with

12 percent in poor to very poor condition as of Sunday. About 39

percent of the wheat was listed in fair condition, while 42 percent

was rated as good and 7 percent excellent.
