Winter Wheat Planting Reaches The Halfway Point

KSCB News - October 6, 2015 10:16 am

Kansas farmers are nearing the halfway point for planting of the 2016 winter wheat crop.

The National Agricultural Statistics Service reported Monday that 46 percent of the state’s winter wheat crop has been seeded. That is slightly behind the 49 percent average for this date.

The agency also provided its weekly snapshot of the progress of the fall harvest for other major crops in the state.

About 62 percent of the corn in Kansas has now been cut, along with 25 percent of the sorghum and 15 percent of the soybeans. Fourth cutting of alfalfa is 88 percent complete.

Cotton growers have harvested about 4 percent of their crop in the state.
