Halloween is a scant four days away. The 2013 summer cropping season is finally close to wrapping up and the 2015 wheat crop is at mostly planted. What happened or more precisely why did it happen? Before starting it's helpful to keep in mind several specifics. First, precipitation amounts and distribution improved from west to east in the area. Second, when crops were planted played a major role in yields as did soil type, fertility, tillage and other factors. Third, these comments are describing the area in general.

MANHATTAN - Often it's hard to pinpoint one drive as the turning point in a college football game - especially one with a 23-point final margin. But Kansas State's 14-play, 78-yard drive into the wind that took 8:24 of the third quarter was just that. It gave Kansas State the lead for good in a 35-12 victory over West Virginia.
