Harvest Progressing Slower Than Usual

KSAL StaffJune 13, 2016

The latest government snapshot of Kansas crops shows a slower than usual start to the state’s wheat harvest.

The National Agricultural Statistics Service reported Monday that 5 percent of the winter wheat in Kansas had now been harvested. That is slightly more progress compared to this time a year ago, but it is still behind the 15 percent average.

It noted that wheat harvest has gained momentum in the southern parts of Kansas.

The agency also rated the condition of wheat still out in the field as 10 percent excellent and 51 percent good. About 31 percent is in fair condition, with 8 percent in poor to very poor shape.

Condition updates for the state’s corn, soybean and sorghum crops are listed as mostly good to excellent.
