Industry groups estimate the Kansas winter
wheat harvest is about 75 percent complete, with reports indicating
a good quality crop so far.
The Kansas Grain and Feed Association, in conjunction with other
industry trade groups, reported Thursday that farmers in Barber
County have finished their harvest. The OK Co-op Grain Co. says it
took in 3 million bushels, with farmers averaging 45 to 55 bushels
per acre. The crop quality in that area was excellent, as test
weights averaged 61 pounds per bushel.
Sumner County farmers brought in about 45 to 50 bushels per
acre. The Farmer’s Co-op Grain Association in Wellington reports
taking in more than 4 million bushels at its five locations, about
30 percent more than usual.
