Kansas Wheat Better than a Year Ago but Needs Rain
03/06/2012

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A new report says the winter wheat crop in
Kansas continues to look better than last year's crop due to mild
winter temperatures.
     But in its report Monday, Kansas Agricultural Statistics Service
also says the crop needs rain during the first weeks of emerging
from dormancy.
     Some wheat has begun joining in south-central and southeast
Kansas.
     Crop conditions declined slightly in the past week throughout
the state. The latest ratings are 12 percent poor to very poor, 38
percent fair, 43 percent good 7 percent excellent.
     At this time a year ago, the Kansas wheat crop was faring so
badly that 40 percent was rated in poor to very poor condition.
