WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — The Kansas winter wheat harvest is quickly wrapping up for another year.
The National Agricultural Statistics Service reported Monday that 92 percent of the wheat in Kansas has now been harvested. That is ahead of the 85 percent harvested for the five-year average for this late in the season.
Spring-planted farm crops are also making some progress with nearly half of the state's corn now silking. About 38 percent of soybeans are blooming and about five percent of them are setting pods.
The agency also reported that 6 percent of sorghum crops in Kansas have headed.
