Wheat Harvest About Complete

KSCB News - July 14, 2015 8:04 am

A new government update on the winter wheat harvest shows that 93 percent of the crop has now been cut in Kansas.

The National Agricultural Statistics Service reported Monday in its weekly that progress was ahead of the 87 percent cut at this time last year, but near the 94 percent that would be average for this late in the harvest.

The agency says 55 percent of the corn grown in Kansas is in excellent to good condition with 33 percent rated as fair and 12 percent poor to very poor.

Soybeans rated 48 percent excellent to good, 43 percent fair and 9 percent poor to very poor.

About 66 percent of sorghum was in good to excellent shape, with 30 percent fair, and 4 percent poor to very poor.
