WICHITA, Kan. (AP) A new report shows Kansas growers are still behind in getting their crops planted.
The National Agricultural Statistics Service reported Monday that sorghum planting is running late with 25% planted. That is half of what is normally seeded by this time.
Just 48% of the states soybeans have also been planted so far. Usually by this late in the spring Kansas farmers already have 69% of the crop seeded.
