Crop Progress Slowed By Cool Wet Weather

KSCB News - May 25, 2010 12:00 am

Cool weather and ample rain have slowed

progress in the state’s winter wheat crop.

Kansas Agricultural Statistics Service said Monday in its weekly

report that 81 percent of the wheat has now headed. That is behind

the 88 percent that would be average at this time in the season.

About 3 percent has turned color.

Winter wheat condition was rated as 12 percent excellent, 52

percent good and 27 percent fair. About 9 percent was in poor to

very poor condition.
