Kansas Wheat Harvest Nearing Completion

KSCB News - July 13, 2010 12:00 am

Damp weather across Kansas has slowed the

progress of the winter wheat harvest.

In its weekly crop-weather report Monday, Kansas Agricultural

Statistics Service said the harvest was 92 percent complete –

roughly average for this time of year.

Northwestern Kansas continues to lag the rest of the state in

the harvest. Less than half the wheat has been cut in that region.

The agency rated the condition of the Kansas corn crop as 14

percent excellent, 60 percent good and 20 percent fair. About 6

percent was rated in poor to very poor condition.
