Kansas Wheat Heading, Corn Planting Makes Progress

 A government report shows the Kansas winter wheat crop is maturing at a faster rate than usual.

The National Agricultural Statistics Service reported Monday that 23 percent of the state's wheat crop was already headed. That is ahead of the 15 percent that would be average for this time of year.

It also rates wheat condition as 2 percent very poor, 9 percent poor and 36 percent fair. About 48 percent is rated as good and 5 percent as excellent.

The agency also reported corn planting in the state is now at 43 percent, ahead of the 27 percent which would be average at this point in the season.
