Most Farmers Finished with KS Wheat Harvest


WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Most Kansas farmers are now finished with this year's winter wheat harvest. The National Agricultural Statistics Service reported Monday that 90 percent of wheat has been cut. That is behind the 96 percent that would be normal for this late in the season. Some farmers who sprayed herbicides to kill weeds infestations are waiting for the weeds to die before finishing the harvest. The agency's weekly snapshot rated corn condition in the state as 8 percent poor to very poor, 30 percent fair, 49 percent good and 13 percent excellent. Sorghum condition was rated as 5 percent poor, 31 percent fair, 55 percent good and 9 percent excellent. Soybeans are also doing well in Kansas with the latest update showing only 3 percent in poor or very poor condition.
