Report: 7 percent of corn harvested in Kansas

Posted: Updated:

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Some Kansas farmers are busy preparing for fall seeding of their winter wheat crop, while others are harvesting this season's corn crop.

The latest report from the National Agricultural Statistics Service on Tuesday says about 7 percent of the corn crops in Kansas have been cut. At this time last year none had been cut, but progress this year is closer to the 10 percent average for early September.

The agency rated corn condition as 17 percent poor to very poor, 29 percent fair, 42 percent good and 12 percent excellent.

About 5 percent of the sorghum crop in Kansas has now matured, and 6 percent of the soybeans have begun dropping leaves. The weekly report also said about 86 percent of the sunflower crop is blooming across Kansas.
