WICHITA, Kan. (AP)—A new report says that 71 percent of Kansas farms now have access to computers.

An Aug. 21 report from the U.S. Department of Agriculture shows that Kansas slightly exceeds the nationwide average of 70 percent.

The report also says that 68 percent of farms in Kansas have Internet access. That number is up 6 percent from the last time the data were collected in 2011.

Nationally, 67 percent of U.S. farms have Internet access, up from 62 percent in 2011.

The most common method of accessing the Internet on the nation’s farms is DSL, used by 35 percent, followed by 24 percent with wireless access. Those methods are trailed by cable and satellite access, with about 5 percent of farms still using dial-up.
