WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A new government report gives the Kansas winter wheat crop a mostly upbeat assessment.

The National Agricultural Statistics Service reported Monday that 57% of the wheat in Kansas was in good to excellent condition. About 32% was rated as fair, while 11% was judged to be in poor to very poor shape.

The agency also reported that 44% of the wheat crop has now jointed. That is ahead of a year ago, but behind the five-year average of 61%.
