A new government report says Kansas farmers have now seeded 84 percent of their 2012 winter wheat crop.

Kansas Agricultural Statistics Service reported Monday that the pace of wheat planting is about the same as last year. About 56 percent of the wheat has now emerged.

The agency also says the harvest of fall crops was slowed last week by much needed-rainfall.

The corn harvest was about 75 percent complete as of Sunday. About 59 percent of the state's soybeans have been cut, along with 25 percent of the sorghum.

Winter feeding season is approaching, and the report says that supplies of hay and forage supplies are rated 56 percent short to very short across Kansas.
