KSCB News - May 18, 2015 4:23 pm

The latest government snapshot of Kansas crops shows an improving winter wheat crop amid widespread rains.

The National Agricultural Statistics Service reported Monday that 30 percent of the crop was still in poor to very poor condition, a slight improvement compared to a week ago. About 41 percent of the wheat is reported in fair condition, with 27 percent rated as good and 2 percent as excellent.

About 86 percent of the state’s winter wheat crop has headed and 5 percent has colored.

Kansas growers have now planted about 78 percent of their corn crops and 17 percent of their soybeans. Sorghum planting trails at 6 percent. About 1 percent of the sunflowers have also been planted.
