Report: 3% Of Kansas Wheat Crop Mature

KSCB News - June 8, 2010 12:00 am

A new government report says 3% of the Kansas winter wheat crop has matured.

Kansas Agricultural Statistics Service, in its weekly update Monday, says 8% of the wheat is usually mature at this point in the season.

Wheat condition was rated as 9% excellent, 47% good and 31% fair. About 13% was rated as poor to very poor.

Farmers around the south-central town of Kiowa (KEYE’-oh-wah) on the Oklahoma border began cutting wheat Friday, bringing in about 90,000 bushels before rain hit the area.

OK Co-op Grain Co. assistant manager Dennis Carroll says early loads show good quality with test weights of 62 to 64 pounds per bushel
