Wheat Harvest Lagging Behind

KSCB News - June 15, 2015 4:17 pm

A new report shows that 2 percent of the Kansas winter wheat has been cut since harvest activity began last week in the state.

The National Agricultural Statistics Service reported Monday that is about the same amount compared to a year ago at this time. But it is well behind the 18 percent typically cut by now on average.

The agency reported that 20 percent of the Kansas wheat crop has matured. That is behind the 26 percent that had done so at this time a year ago and well behind the 40 percent average for this late in the season.

About 29 percent of the wheat is reported in poor to very poor condition with 41 percent in fair shape. About 30 percent is in good to excellent condition.
