Kansas Expected to Harvest Bountiful Fall Crops

KSAL StaffAugust 12, 2014

A government report predicts bountiful fall crops in Kansas following a devastating winter wheat harvest.

The National Agricultural Statistics Service forecast on Tuesday that Kansas farmers would bring in 544 million bushels of corn this year. That is 7 percent more than a year ago.

The report also estimated the state’s grain sorghum harvest at 187 million bushels. That is up 13 percent from last year.

Kansas soybean production is forecast at 151 million bushels, up 18 percent from the previous year.

All of the fall crops benefited from widespread rains throughout their growing season. But drought conditions earlier this spring decimated the state’s winter wheat.

Wheat production is estimated at 235 million bushels. That is down 26 percent from last year for the worst harvest in 25 years.
