Farmers Get Boost from Snow And Rain

KSCB News - March 31, 2009 12:00 am

(AP) – All that rain and snow in Kansas over the

past week has bolstered the soil moisture badly needed by farmers

across the state.

Kansas Agricultural Statistics Service reported yesterday that

65 percent of the state now has adequate to surplus soil moisture

levels.

Subsoil moisture levels are rated as 71 percent adequate to

surplus.

The agency’s weekly update also shows little change in wheat

crop conditions from a week ago.

The agency rated wheat statewide as 4 percent excellent, 38

percent good and 41 percent fair. About 17 percent was in poor to

very poor condition.
