WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A new government report shows just how far behind the Kansas winter wheat harvest is from normal. The National Agricultural Statistics Service reported Monday that just 5% of the wheat in the state has been cut. That is far less than the 48% that was harvested at this time a year ago and the 36% five-year average. Widespread rains have left many fields too soggy to cut, but the wheat itself is also developing more slowly than usual. The agency reports that only 47% of it has matured, well behind the 82% that had matured by this time last year. Wheat condition was rated 4% very poor, 12% poor, 28% fair, 43% good and 13% excellent. Planting of soybeans, sorghum and sunflowers are also running slower than normal in Kansas.

Farmers are puddle jumping as they continue laboring away at bringing in this year’s winter wheat crop. But while heavy rains across much of the state have pushed harvest about two weeks behind schedule, an industry representative predicts Oklahoma still could see more wheat delivered to elevators in 2019 than the previous year — provided the weather cooperates. Still, that isn’t making the job any easier. Farmer David VonTungeln, whose family has been farming near Calumet in west-central Oklahoma for more than 100 years, said this week he can’t remember the last time fields filled with ripening wheat had seen so much rain. "We have had a cool, really wet spring," he said.
