Kansas Farmers Get Badly Needed Rain, Snow

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ All that rain and snow in Kansas over the past week has bolstered the soil moisture badly needed by farmers across the state.

Kansas Agricultural Statistics Service reported Monday that 65 percent of the state now has adequate to surplus soil moisture levels.

Subsoil moisture levels are rated as 71 percent adequate to surplus.

The agency's weekly update also shows little change in wheat crop conditions from a week ago.

The agency rated wheat statewide as 4 percent excellent, 38 percent good and 41 percent fair. About 17 percent was in poor to very poor condition.
