Associated Press - November 18, 2014 6:16 pm
The National Agricultural Statistics Service reported Friday that it expects this year's wheat production to be 334.4 million bushels in Kansas. That is up from the 314.5 million bushels it had forecast just last month.
The latest government report shows most of the newly planted Kansas winter wheat crop is faring well so far.
The National Agricultural Statistics Service rates 6 percent of the wheat crop in excellent condition and 56 percent as good. About 35 percent is in fair condition and just 3 percent is rated as poor.
About 92 percent of the wheat crop has emerged.
Growers in the state have now harvested 96 percent of the corn, 81 percent of the sorghum and 92 percent of the soybeans.
