According to the results from the 2017 agriculture census released by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Kansas ranks fifth in production.
The census is taken every four to five years, with the first being conducted in 1840.
Only California, Iowa, Texas and Nebraska top Kansas in farm production. While production numbers are significantly higher compared to 2012, the Great Plains suffered a historical drought that year.
