Report: About 74% of winter wheat planted in Kansas

A government report shows Kansas growers have planted about 74% of next year's winter wheat crop.

The National Agricultural Statistics Service reported Tuesday that wheat planting is well ahead of the 56% that is average for this time of year. About half of the wheat crop has emerged.

Kansas farmers are also busy bringing in fall-harvested crops. The state's corn harvest is 63% complete. About 40% of the soybeans and 30% of the sorghum crops have been cut.

The agency also reported that 22% of sunflowers and 2% of cotton crops have been harvested.
