Widespread Rains Boost Kansas Crops but Problems Persist

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Widespread rains helped boost farm crops and replenish soil moisture across Kansas. The National Agricultural Statistics Service reported Monday that 70 percent of the state's winter wheat crop has now headed. Wheat condition was rated as 31 percent poor to very poor with 42 percent in fair condition. About 25 percent of the crop is in good and 2 percent in excellent condition. The agency also issued a report for spring-planted corn fields. It rated corn condition as 5 percent poor, 39 percent fair, 52 percent good and 4 percent excellent. Kansas farmers this last week also moved cattle to summer pasture. The agency rated pasture conditions in the state as 17 percent poor, 38 percent fair, 38 percent good and 7 percent excellent.
