Kansas Harvest 20 Percent Complete

KSCB News - June 5, 2012 5:59 am

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) – The Kansas Agricultural Statistics Service is reporting that 20 percent of the state’s winter wheat crop had been harvested as of Sunday.

The agency said Monday that southeast Kansas is farthest along, with half of its wheat now in the bin. Farmers in south-central Kansas have cut 44 percent of their crop.

About 62 percent of the wheat crop has now matured, compared with an average of only 2 percent at this point in the season. Just 4 percent of the wheat has not yet turned color.

The new report says 24 percent of the wheat is rated poor to very poor. About 36 percent is rated fair, with 32 percent rated good and 8 percent excellent.
