Winter Wheat Starts To Green Up

KSCB News - March 11, 2014 8:27 am

A government report says the Kansas winter wheat crop has begun to green up in a few parts of the state.

The National Agricultural Statistics Service on Monday reported the crop’s condition as 18 percent poor to very poor, about 45 percent fair and 35 percent good to excellent.

The agency also said cold weather in the past week challenged Kansas farmers calving during snowstorms. Some ranchers reported respiratory issues in newborn calves.

While pastures are also starting to turn green, concerns are growing about dry conditions and low pond levels. Stock water supplies were reported as adequate in 69 percent of Kansas.
