Winter Wheat Seeding Ahead of Schedule

KSCB News - October 10, 2012 5:55 am

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) – Kansas Agricultural Statistics Service says

growers have seeded 65 percent of the 2013 winter wheat crop in the

state.

The weekly crop snapshot released Tuesday says that progress is

ahead of both last year and the average for this time of year.

About a quarter of the winter wheat has now emerged.

Meanwhile, the fall harvest continues to make progress in

Kansas. The corn harvest is 82 percent complete, two weeks ahead of

last year. Most of the corn still left to cut is in western Kansas.

Soybean harvest has reached the 23 percent mark, while the

harvest of sorghum is 19 percent complete.

The agency rated 63 percent of the soybeans in poor to very poor

condition, and 67 percent of the sorghum also fell into that

category.
