Spring rains a blessing

A farmer from south-central Kansas says the consistent spring rains have been a blessing after years of excessively dry conditions.

“I’d like to give you a dollar figure value, but I can’t.”

Craig Meeker, also the chairman of the National Sorghum Producers Association, tells Brownfield sorghum planting has been delayed at times this spring due to the rains, but there wasn’t any problem getting the corn planted and it’s got a good stand.

USDA’s latest crop progress report says 51% of the Kansas corn crop and 4% of the sorghum has been planted so far this spring. Topsoil moisture is 51% adequate to surplus and subsoil moisture is 44% adequate to surplus.

The crop progress report will be updated Monday afternoon.
