Harvest Making Slow Progress

KSAL StaffJuly 8, 2014

The latest government crop update shows the Kansas wheat harvest is making slow progress.

The National Agricultural Statistics Service reported Monday that 70 percent of the wheat has now been harvested, compared with an early-July average of 88 percent. The agency says that some cutting was delayed by the application of herbicides to control weeds.

The condition of Kansas wheat still in the field was rated as 61 percent poor to very poor, 27 percent fair, 11 percent good and 1 percent excellent.

Cooler temperatures and rain in the past week are helping spring-planted crops.

Corn condition is rated as 8 percent poor to very poor. About 34 percent of the corn is rated fair, 47 percent good and 11 percent excellent.
