Kansas Corn Crop Maturing Slowly
09/04/2013
 

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A new report from the National Agricultural Statistics Service shows the Kansas corn crop maturing far more slowly than normal.

 

The agency said in its weekly update Tuesday that just 4 percent of the crop has matured, well behind last year's figure of 60 percent and an early-September average of 33 percent.

 

Corn condition is rated as 30 percent poor to very poor, while 31 percent is considered in fair shape. About 32 percent of the crop is in good condition, and 7 percent is rated excellent.

 

About 30 percent of the sorghum is turning color now. About 83 percent of the soybeans are setting pods.
