Kansas Winter Wheat Planting Nearly Complete

Posted: Updated:

Kansas wheat planting is nearly complete, according to the National Agricultural Statistics Service.

The agency's weekly report says the state's winter wheat seeding is 96 percent complete with 86 percent of the wheat emerged.

The agency rated wheat condition as 1 percent very poor, 3 percent poor, 36 percent fair, 55 percent good and 5 percent excellent.

The report says rain kept farmers out of their fields in southern and eastern Kansas over the past week contributing to those numbers.
