Kansas Crops Not Fairing Well

Joe Denoyer - May 14, 2018 3:41 pm

A new report shows more than half of the winter wheat crop in Kansas is struggling.

The National Agricultural Statistics Service reported Monday that 18 percent of the wheat is in “very poor” condition, with another 33 percent rated as poor. Just 34 percent of the crop got a fair with another 14 percent rated as good and 1 percent as excellent.

The report further shows that only 42 percent of the wheat had headed, well behind the 80 percent at this point last year and the 62 percent average for this late in the season.

Kansas farmers have also been busy planting. The report says 68 percent of the state’s corn crop has been seeded, along with 31 percent of the soybeans and 3 percent of the sorghum.
