WICHITA, Kan. — Warm, dry weather has given Kansas farmers a one-week jump on getting their corn crop harvested.

Kansas Agricultural Statistics Service reported Monday the corn harvest is 28 percent complete. That’s twice the amount of corn that’s usually in the bin at this point in the season.

Harvest is also under way for the state’s sorghum crop. KASS reports 3 percent of the sorghum has been cut.

Kansas farmers have also begun planting next year’s winter wheat crop.

The agency reports about 5 percent of the winter wheat has been seeded so far.
