WICHITA, Kan. (AP) The Kansas Agricultural Statistics Service says the recent snow has slightly improved the condition of the state's winter wheat crop.
The agency reported Monday that 36 percent of the wheat crop is still in poor to very poor condition in February. Forty-one percent is rated fair, with 22 percent in good shape and 1 percent in excellent condition.
Topsoil moisture supplies as of Sunday were still 61 percent short to very short statewide. It's even drier in northwest Kansas, where 78 percent of the topsoil moisture is reported as short to very short.
The February snowfall will help somewhat in replenishing supplies of stock water, which are now 78 percent short to very short throughout Kansas.
