Harvest Picks Up As Fields Dry

KSAL StaffJune 19, 2014

The winter wheat harvest is picking up over a big chunk of Kansas.

The industry group Kansas Wheat reports farmers were cutting Wednesday all across southern Kansas and a across a central swath extending almost to the Nebraska border.

Group spokesman Marsha Boswell says growers in northeast and northwest Kansas have not yet begun harvesting, but farmers elsewhere are trying to get into the fields if they’re dry enough.

She says the group has had reports of cutting extending as far north as Cloud and Mitchell counties in north-central Kansas.

The group reports that some farmers are struggling with height of the wheat because the shorter crop makes it more difficult for combines to keep headers out of the mud.
