The Kansas Agricultural Statistics Service says the winter wheat crop is beginning to break dormancy.
In a report issued Monday, the agency says about 4% of the crop has broken dormancy, mostly in the southwest and south-central regions.
More than half of the wheat — about 53% — is in good to excellent condition. About 35% was rated fair, and 12% was rated in poor to very poor condition.
Topsoil moisture levels show 96% of the state with adequate to surplus moisture.
