Ky. Farmers Looking at Prospect of High Yields
A new agriculture forecast says plenty of rain and cooler temperatures mean Kentucky grain farmers could see productive yields later this year.
The Kentucky office of the National Agricultural Statistics Service says 85 percent of the commonwealth's corn crop and 84 percent of its soybean crop are rated good or excellent.
Daviess County agricultural extension agent Clint Hardy said there's no comparison to a year ago, when farmers in his county suffered through one of the worst corn crops in memory. Now, he says the corn is green, tall and growing.
