WICHITA, Kan. (AP) – Kansas farmers have now cut all but 20

percent of the state’s winter wheat crop, with most of the fields

left to be harvested located in western Kansas.

Kansas Agricultural Statistics Service reported Monday in its

weekly update that the harvest was more than two weeks ahead of

last year. Usually just 7 percent of the Kansas crop is cut by this

time in the year.

Northwest Kansas had cut only a quarter of its wheat acreage as

of Sunday, but wheat harvest across most of the state was better

than 90 percent finished.

Meanwhile, the agency reported corn condition declining

slightly.

About 14 percent of the crop now rated as poor to very poor, 41

percent fair, 41 percent good and 4 percent excellent.
