The latest wheat harvest report says weekend rain slowed cutters' progress in north-central Kansas, while the harvest in west-central Kansas is beginning to wind down.

Kansas Wheat Commissioner Rich Randall told the industry group
Kansas Wheat that nearly all the dryland wheat has been cut in
Scott County. Randall says the quality of the wheat northwest of
Scott City has been good thanks to timely rain, but yields are down
south of the city due to drought and hail.

The harvest is about half done in Clay County. Tom Stewart,
manager at the Farmway Co-op there, says Clay County farmers will
harvest an average crop overall.
