WICHITA, Kan. (AP) Kansas farmers have begun seeding the 2013 winter wheat crop amid a grim fall harvest of other major crops in the state.
Kansas Agricultural Statistics Service reported Monday that 2 percent of the state's winter wheat crop had been planted by Sunday.
Meanwhile, growers are harvesting their drought-stressed crops, with about 41 of the corn acreage now cut. Soybean harvest has begun in some parts of the state with 1 percent of that crop now harvested. Sorghum harvest also is under way with 4 percent cut.
The condition of fall-harvested crops still in the fields remains sobering in spite of some scattered precipitation.
