This season's fall harvest in Kansas is drawing to a close as the 2012 winter wheat crop begins to emerge.

Kansas Agricultural Statistics Service reported Monday that 3 percent of the state's sorghum and 5 percent of the sunflower acreages remain to be cut.

The agency also noted that all but 3 percent of the winter wheat crop has emerged. It rated wheat condition as 5 percent excellent, 42 percent good and 40 percent fair. About 13 percent of the wheat is in poor to very poor condition.

Hay and forage supplies are short to very short in 55 percent of the state as winter nears. Livestock producers are also still voicing concerns about low water in stock ponds despite recent rains.
