WICHITA, Kan. — A new report says Kansas growers have planted nearly three-quarters of their winter wheat acreage.

In its weekly update Tuesday, Kansas Agricultural Statistics Service reports that 71 percent of the planned acreage is now seeded. That’s ahead of last year and just a bit behind the five-year average.

Warm and dry conditions last week allowed farmers to harvest more of their fall crops. The corn harvest is 81 percent complete. About 40 percent of the sorghum and 43 percent of the soybeans have been cut.
