All the rain and warm temperatures last
week spurred more Kansas farm crops toward maturity.
But the Kansas Agricultural Statistics Service says the weather
also slowed harvesting.
The agency’s weekly crop update says 84 percent of the Kansas
corn crop is mature, with about 39 percent of the crop harvested.
That is still far ahead of the 7 percent cut at this time last
About 6 percent of the sorghum has been cut. Soybean harvest is
just beginning in some areas.
Meanwhile, winter wheat planting is about 11 percent complete.
