Two combines work late to cut wheat in a field on the wide open plains.
A new government report says growers have cut about 79 percent of their winter wheat crop in Kansas.
The National Agricultural Statistics Service said Tuesday that progress is near the five-year average for this time of year.
Harvest is almost wrapped up in parts of Kansas. More than 90 percent of the crop is now in the bin in central, south-central northeast, east-central and southeast regions of the state.
Harvest is 43 percent finished in the northwest corner of the state, with 58 percent of the crop cut in the west-central region.
The agency also gave mostly favorable crop condition updates this week to corn, soybean and sorghum crops now growing across the state.
