Kansas Farmers Seed More Winter Wheat

KSCB News - January 13, 2012 8:17 am

The nation’s farmers seeded more winter
wheat this season amid higher prices and easing drought conditions
in Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas.
The National Agricultural Statistics Service reported Thursday
that the 41.9 million acres of winter wheat planted for harvest in
2012 is up 3 percent from 2011 and up 12 percent from 2010.
The hard red winter wheat that is typically used for making
bread accounted for the bulk of that surge. The estimated 30.1
million acres of hard red winter wheat is up 6 percent from last
year.
Kansas again led the nation in winter wheat seedings with 9.5
million acres planted for an increase of 8 percent over last year.
