WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- The latest government snapshot of the Kansas winter wheat crop is still portraying a grim picture.

Kansas Agricultural Statistics Service reported Monday that 31 percent of the wheat is in poor to very poor condition. About 40 percent is rated fair with 27 percent in good and 2 percent excellent condition. About 5 percent of the crop has now jointed.

The agency also says that topsoil moisture levels statewide are 47 percent short to very short. Subsoil moisture supplies are faring far worse, with 82 percent reported as short to very short.
