Common Kansas crops

Kansas has lots of crops common to our state. We are know for your wheat. Also very common crops are corn, Milo (grain sorghum), soybeans, and sunflowers. Less common crops but can be found is cotton, canola, rye, tritacle (cross between wheat and rye), and millet. Hay crops like alfalfa, feed sorghum, and oats.

Wheat, tritacle, rye, and canola are harvested in June and July. Corn, Milo, sunflowers, beans, and cotton are harvested right now. Oats are ready in the spring. Feed sorghum in the fall. And alfalfa has many cuttings spring to fall.

Last week we hauled 3 loads of Milo and a ton of beans. Now we are onto corn.
