Specialists with the University of Kentucky College of Agriculture, Food and Environment are holding a series of Early Bird Meetings across the state to help grain producers prepare for the 2015 season.

Lower grain prices, tighter profit margins, drought and herbicide resistant weeds are problems Kentucky’s corn, soybean and wheat producers have faced in recent years. UK specialists will discuss these issues and others during the event.

The meetings are scheduled for Dec. 8 at the Henderson County Extension office, Dec. 9 at the Sedalia Restaurant in Graves County and Dec. 10 at the Hardin County Extension office. Each meeting will start at 8 a.m. and conclude by noon, local time. A lunch provided by the Kentucky Corn Growers’ Association, Kentucky Small Grain Growers’ Association and Kentucky Soybean Board will follow each meeting.

Program organizers have requested continuing education credits for Certified Crop Advisers and pesticide applicators.
