WICHITA, Kan. — Kansas farmers are making good progress getting next year’s winter wheat crop into the ground.

Kansas Agricultural Statistics Service reported Monday that 21 percent of the wheat acreage has now been planted. That’s about even with late September last year but behind the five-year average of 28 percent.

Meanwhile, fall harvest of other crops is also going well.

Corn harvest is 54 complete. The harvest is more than a week ahead of normal and more than a month ahead of last year’s rate.

About 13 percent of the sorghum and 7 percent of the soybeans have also been cut in Kansas.
