Harvest Nearly 90 Percent Complete

KSAL StaffJuly 8, 2013

The National Agricultural Statistics Service is reporting that Kansas farmers have harvested 87 percent of their winter wheat crop.

The agency reported Monday that by this date last year the entire crop had been cut, but harvest activity is nearing the seasonal average of 89 percent.

It also noted that 99 percent of the state’s winter wheat is ripe.

Harvest in central Kansas is 99 percent finished, while harvest in northwest Kansas is just 45 completed.

While the dry conditions across most of the state helped harvest pick up speed, some crops are suffering in arid western Kansas.

About 14 percent of the corn crop is in poor to very poor shape, 37 percent is reported as fair, 43 percent is good and 6 percent is in excellent condition.
