WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A new government report says the Kansas winter wheat crop is maturing more slowly than usual.

The National Agricultural Statistics Service reported Monday that about 14% of the wheat has now headed. That is near what it was a year ago, but well behind the 41% average for this date.

The agency also rated wheat condition as 10% poor to very poor, 32% in fair shape, and 58% in good to excellent condition.
