Kansas Growers Planting Winter Wheat, Harvesting Corn

September 15, 2015 08:00 PM

Kansas growers are planting next year's winter wheat crop while harvesting their corn and other fall crops.

The National Agricultural Statistics Service reported Monday that 5 percent of the 2016 wheat crop has been seeded. That is typical for this point in the season.

The agency also is reporting that about 11 percent of the corn in Kansas has now been cut. That is slightly behind the 17 percent at this time a year ago or the 25 percent average.

About 2 percent of the sorghum in the state has been cut, which is normal for this time of the year.

Fourth cutting of alfalfa in Kansas is 65 percent finished, ahead of both last year and the average for this point in the season.
