Kansas Wheat Down This Year

AP- The U.S. Department of Agriculture expects this year’s Kansas winter wheat crop to drop 35 percent from last year. The department on Friday said Kansas winter wheat farmers are expected to bring in 304 million bushels this year. Las year, farmers produced 467 million bushels.

Sunday was day one of the Kansas wheat harvest reports. Wheat harvest moved into the state last week, with test cutting showing moisture levels were a big high, but after a few days of hot, dry, windy weather, combines were in full force by the end of the week. Combines could be seen rolling across fields in south central and southeast Kansas all weekend.
