Wheat Harvest Winding Down

KSCB News - July 7, 2010 12:00 am

The 2010 Kansas wheat harvest is nearing an

end.

Kansas Agricultural Statistics Service reports that 84 percent

of the wheat acreage had been cut before weekend rain shut down the

harvest. Usually by this time, 80 percent is cut statewide.

Most of the remaining wheat is in the state’s northwest corner,

where the agency says about 69 percent of the crop has yet to be

cut.

In its weekly crop report Tuesday, the agency also said the rain

helped alleviate stress on other Kansas crops.

Corn condition was rated as 11 percent excellent, 60 percent

good and 24 percent fair. Just 5 percent was rated in poor to very

poor condition.
