Heat accelerates harvest progress

The near-record warm weather the past week meant a big catch up for harvesting farmers across the region, who took in 21 percent of the spring wheat crop in the seven days ended Saturday night. That means 77 percent of the crop the state’s most known for is now in the bin, compared to 95 percent by Sept. 20 in a typical year, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s weekly crop progress report.
