The Kansas Association of Wheat Growers is touring fields across the state this week to check on the progress of this year’s wheat crop. As of Wednesday, it appears the output is well below what farmers had hoped for.
- It won’t be much longer before Kansas farmers will again be firing up combines for wheat harvest. And with any recent light rainfall not being enough to improve the current drought situation, some are worried an overall lack of rain could cause problems this summer.
When it comes time to plant your springtime garden, water and sunlight will only get you so far. Like most things in 2022, when you head to your local lawn and garden store, you’ll likely find the fertilizer you use each year is more expensive.
The snow may be inconvenient for some Kansans, but for farmers across the state, the recent totals that have caused issues leading to road and school closures are providing much-needed moisture for farmers.
