MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) - A government report shows Kansas growers have planted about 74% of next year's winter wheat crop.
The National Agricultural Statistics Service reported Tuesday that wheat planting is well ahead of the 56% that is average for this time of year. About half of the wheat crop has emerged.
Kansas farmers are also busy bringing in fall-harvested crops. The state's corn harvest is 63% complete. About 40% of the soybeans and 30% of the sorghum crops have been cut.
The agency also reported that 22% of sunflowers and 2% of cotton crops have been harvested.
