Winter-Wheat Crop Conditions Improve in Kansas; Texas Steady

Winter-wheat conditions in Kansas improved last week after most of the state received some precipitation, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said. Conditions in Texas were unchanged.

About 26 percent of the crop in Kansas, the biggest U.S. winter-wheat grower, was in good or excellent condition as of yesterday, up from 25 percent a week earlier, the USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service said today in a report on its website. About 18 percent of Texas crops were rated good to excellent, unchanged from a week earlier.
