Kansas Dry Land Corn Thirsty for More Rain This Season

Posted: Updated:

The rain that fell in parts of Kansas this summer helped irrigated corn but left dry land corn thirsty for more.

John Holman, an agronomist with Kansas State University Southwest Research Extension Center, said the irrigated corn harvest is expected to be better than it has been in the past two years.

50- to 60-percent of the irrigated corn is in good condition, with about 30-percent in good to excellent condition.              

Holman said that the dry land crop didn't profit as much from the rain. The dry land corn's condition improves farther east in Kansas but 75-percent of that crop is poor to very poor.
