Winter Wheat Planting Underway

Joe Denoyer - September 20, 2016 7:59 am

Kansas farmers are planting winter wheat and harvesting their fall crops in parts of the state where fields are dry enough to do so.

The National Agricultural Statistics Service reported Monday that winter wheat planting is 9 percent complete. That is about the same amount as last year and the five-year average.

Corn harvest is 17 percent finished in the state. Usually 29 percent is done on average by this time.

The condition of corn still out in Kansas fields is rated as 11 percent excellent, 55 percent good and 26 percent pair. About 8 percent is in poor to very poor condition.

About 5 percent of the Kansas sorghum has also been cut.
