WICHITA, Kan. — The dry weather pattern across Kansas is helping farmers bring in the fall harvest, but the recently planted winter wheat crop needs moisture.

Kansas Agricultural Statistics Service reported Monday that about 25 percent of the winter wheat was rated in poor to very poor condition. The rest was rated as 3 percent excellent, 32 percent good and 40 percent fair.

The agency also reported that only a few fields of corn, 9 percent of the sorghum crop and 5 percent of the soybean crop are left unharvested.
