WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- The Kansas winter wheat harvest is slowly moving closer to the Nebraska border.

The trade group Kansas Wheat reported Wednesday that the yields are mixed across Kansas as more grain is harvested.

In Bucklin, the harvest has reached the 60 percent mark with the Offerle Co-op saying it expects to take in about one-third of last year's below-average crop. Yields are ranging from 5 to 30 bushels an acre there.

Great Bend Co-op reports that harvest is about halfway done at its seven elevators. It has only taken in 1.7 million bushels, well short of the 3.8 million bushels average.

Yields have been ranging from 5 to 13 bushels per acre in drought-stricken fields west of Highway 281 while eastern Barton County has seen 60 bushels an acre.
