Report: Kansas Wheat Harvest 95 Percent Finished

Associated Press - July 22, 2014 5:19 am

Another class action lawsuit has been filed against seed giant Monsanto over last month's discovery of an isolated field of genetically engineered wheat in Oregon.

The 2014 Kansas wheat harvest is finally almost over.

The National Agricultural Statistics Service reported Monday that 95 percent of the wheat is now in the bin. Usually by this late in the year, all the wheat has been cut.

All the recent rains have helped the spring-planted crops in Kansas.

Corn is rated as 15 percent excellent, 49 percent good and 29 percent fair. Just 7 percent got a poor or very poor rating.

For sorghum, the agency reports 10 percent in excellent, 55 percent in good and 31 percent in fair condition. Just 4 percent got a poor rating.

Soybeans in Kansas are doing even better with 10 percent in excellent, 57 percent in good 31 percent in fair condition. Only 2 percent got a poor mark.
