WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A new report says rain slowed fieldwork on farms in southern and eastern Kansas in the past week, while most of the western part of the state remains dry.

Monday's weekly update from the National Agricultural Statistics Service pegs winter wheat seeding in Kansas at 96 percent complete. About 86 percent of the wheat has now emerged.

The agency rated wheat condition as 1 percent very poor, 3 percent poor, 36 percent fair, 55 percent good and 5 percent excellent.

Among other crops, the agency estimates Kansas farmers have cut 87 percent of the corn crop. Sorghum harvest had reached the 67 percent mark. About 81 percent of the state's soybeans and 60 percent of sunflowers have also been harvested.
