WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas crops and pastures are mostly faring better in the wake of heavy rain that brought much-needed moisture to arid western sections but swamped some fields elsewhere. The National Agricultural Statistics Service reported Monday that supplies of stock water improved, but remain short to very short in 26 percent of Kansas. Pastures remain in poor to very poor shape across 39 percent of the state. Corn condition is 26 percent poor to very poor, 33 percent fair, 35 percent good and 6 percent excellent. Sorghum is rated as 15 percent poor to very poor, 36 percent fair, 43 percent good and 6 percent excellent. About 9 percent of soybeans remain in poor to very poor condition, with 29 percent rated fair, 54 percent good and 8 percent excellent.
