Kansas farmers expect to plant a record soybean crop this spring.

Kansas Agricultural Statistics Service reported Tuesday that the 3.5 million acres the state's farmers anticipate seeding with soybeans is up 6% from last year.

That larger soybean acreage comes at the expense of corn and sorghum.

Corn planting intentions are down 1% to 3.8 million acres in Kansas. Sorghum acreage is expected to be down 3% at 2.8 million acres in the state.

Kansas farmers planted last fall an estimated 9 million acres in winter wheat. Wheat acreage is down 6% from the previous year in the state.
