WICHITA, Kansas — Spring-planted crops in Kansas are for the most part faring pretty well in Kansas so far this growing season in the wake of all the rain that hit when many were emerging.
The National Agricultural Statistics Service reported Monday that 56 of the corn crops in the state are in good to excellent condition. Another 34 percent of them are rated as fair with 10 percent in poor to very poor shape.
The agency also said in its weekly update that 71 percent of the sorghum in Kansas is in good to excellent condition. About 49 percent of the soybeans also are rated as good to excellent, along with 70 percent of the sunflowers.
