WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Kansas farmers are taking advantage of the mild weather to harvest fall crops, put up feed for cattle and seed wheat.

The National Agricultural Statistics Service said Monday that 31 percent of the winter wheat crop has now been planted. About 13 percent of it has already emerged.

Farmers also made progress on bringing in their fall crops. Corn harvest is 35 percent complete in the state, sorghum harvest was 5 percent done, and 2 percent of the soybeans have been harvested.

The fourth cutting of alfalfa hay is about 70 percent complete.
