Winter Wheat Almost Planted

KSCB News - October 14, 2009 12:00 am

(AP) – Kansas farmers have planted about 70

percent of next year’s winter wheat crop.

Kansas Agricultural Statistics Service reported Tuesday the

wheat planting still lags behind the 77 percent in the ground at

this time a year ago, as well as the 74 percent average.

Harvest of other crops is also making progress.

About 19 percent of the soybean harvest is in. Farmers have cut

40 percent of their corn and 8 percent of their sorghum in the

state. About 8 percent of the sunflowers also are in the bin.
