(AP) – With the end of winter wheat harvest,

Kansas farmers are focusing on their spring-planted crops.

Kansas Agricultural Statistics Service said Monday fieldwork

activities for the past week included cutting alfalfa and applying

pesticides to row crops.

The agency rated corn condition as 71 percent good to excellent,

with 25 percent in fair shape. Just 4 percent of the corn was rated

in poor to very poor condition.

Sorghum and soybean crops are also doing well. About 77 percent

of the sorghum crop and 74 percent of the soybeans in the state

were rated in good to excellent condition.
