Wheat Harvest Under Way Across Most Of Kansas

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ The Kansas Association of Wheat Growers
says the harvest is progressing throughout most of the state.

In its daily harvest update, the group said Sunday the exception
is extreme northeast Kansas where cutting has yet to begin.

Harvest is gearing up in Lane County. Kansas Wheat Commission
vice chairman Ron Suppes reported that the white wheat he is now
cutting is averaging more than 64 pounds per bushel. He said wheat
that looked like a disaster in March is now yielding at least 40
bushels an acre.

Harvest is about 70 percent done at the Farmway Co-op in Beloit.
In Oakley, harvest is just starting.
