Kansas Leads Nation In Wheat, Sorghum Production
06/11/2014

A new government report shows Kansas leads the nation in the production of wheat and sorghum grain.

The National Agricultural Statistics Service reported Tuesday that 15 percent of last year's total U.S. wheat crop was grown in Kansas. About 42 percent of the U.S. sorghum grown for grain also came out of Kansas.

The agency's rankings show Kansas second in the nation in the total number of acres used to grow farm crops. The 28.5 million cropland acres in Kansas represents 7.3 percent of the land used for farm crops in the nation.

Kansas also had 5.8 million head of cattle and calves, third in the nation behind Texas and Nebraska. The 2.13 million cattle in its feedlots also ranked Kansas third in that category.
