Wheat Condition Good Heading Into Winter

KSCB News - November 26, 2013 8:01 am

The latest government snapshot of the Kansas winter wheat crop looks mostly good as cold weather sets in across the state.

The National Agricultural Statistics Service reported Monday that 7 percent of the wheat was in excellent condition. Fifty-six percent was in good condition and 33 percent was rated fair, with just 4 percent in poor to very poor shape.

The agency says a hard freeze helped dry crops that are still in the field before a wintry storm halted harvesting.

The update says 98 percent of the corn crop, about 97 percent of the sorghum and 95 percent of the soybeans have been cut. Sunflower harvest is 94 percent complete.
