WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ Kansas farmers have now cut all but 20 percent of the state's winter wheat crop, with most of the fields left to be harvested located in western Kansas.

Kansas Agricultural Statistics Service reported Monday in its weekly update that the harvest was more than two weeks ahead of last year. Usually just 7 percent of the Kansas crop is cut by this time in the year.

Northwest Kansas had cut only a quarter of its wheat acreage as of Sunday, but wheat harvest across most of the state was better than 90 percent finished.

Meanwhile, the agency reported corn condition declining slightly.

About 14 percent of the crop now rated as poor to very poor, 41 percent fair, 41 percent good and 4 percent excellent.
