Wind, Hard Freeze Spurs Fall Harvest

KSCB News - November 19, 2013 8:11 am

The latest government crop update says Kansas farmers were able to get most of their remaining crops harvested last week amid a few windy days and a hard freeze.

The National Agricultural Statistics Service reported Monday that a few areas of slow-drying sorghum and double-crop soybeans remain to be cut.

Its latest report shows 94 percent of the state’s corn has been cut, while harvest of sorghum is at 88 percent and soybeans at 91 percent.

Cattlemen in western Kansas have been able to take advantage of good stands of wheat to run their herds on wheat pasture. About 96 percent of the wheat has emerged.

NASS rates the wheat crop as 7 percent excellent, 58 percent good, 32 percent fair, and 3 percent poor to very poor.
