WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ Regulators are lifting the embargo on wheat fields in northwest Kansas.

The latest batch of test results showed levels of the toxic fungicide were either not detectible or below allowable tolerances. The fields were embargoed after a spot check showed the fungicides
were sprayed on the crop too close to harvest.

Embargoes were lifted Monday on 20 fields in Decatur, Gove, Logan, Phillips, Rawlins, Sheridan, Thomas and Trego counties.

No embargoes remain in place now.
