WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A new report confirms what most Kansas farmers already know: The state's wheat harvest stalled almost as soon as it began.
Kansas Agricultural Statistics Service reported Monday that just 1 percent of the winter wheat crop was cut last week before heavy rain hit much of the state.
The agency says about 6 percent of the wheat is normally cut by this time of year, although the harvest hadn't even started at the same point one year ago.
Wheat condition was pegged as 9 percent excellent, 48 percent good and 30 percent fair. About 9 percent is in poor condition with 4 percent in very poor shape.
