A Government report issued on Monday, said that the 2015 winter wheat harvest is nearing completion in some parts of Kansas, and making good progress everywhere else. The National Agricultural Statistics Service reported in its weekly crop update that harvest statewide was 79 percent finished as of Sunday. That is ahead of the 66 percent cut at this time last year, but still behind the 83 percent average for this date. A string of hot, dry days have spurred harvest activity. Kansas has received an inch or less of rainfall this past week according to the report.
