The Kansas winter wheat crop continues to come out of dormancy with the warm temperatures.

In a report Monday, Kansas Agricultural Statistics Service said the crop's condition improved slightly over the past week. The agency now rates 11 percent of the wheat in poor to very poor condition, 36 percent fair, 45 percent good and 8 percent excellent.

Only 4 percent of the wheat is showing light freeze damage.
