Warmer Temperatures Helping Kansas Crops
08/27/2013

Hot, windy conditions over the past week have helped dry out rain-sodden fields across Kansas.
 
     The National Agricultural Statistics Service says Kansas farmers were able to catch up on haying and to spray herbicide to prepare fields for planting wheat. Most crops also benefited from the warmer temperatures.
 
     The agency's weekly update Monday said 1 percent of the corn is mature. Its condition is rated as 28 percent poor to very poor, 32 percent fair, 34 percent good and 6 percent excellent.
 
     Most of the sorghum crop is now heading. The sorghum's condition is rated 14 percent poor to very poor, 32 percent fair, 46 percent good and 8 percent excellent.
 
     Soybean condition was 10 percent poor to very poor, 30 percent fair, 51 percent good and 9 percent excellent.
