Large grain crops in most of the state, coupled with low prices, have producers looking for storage options this harvest season.

Producers in areas west of Hopkinsville and east of Bowling Green are reporting near-record yields in corn and soybeans, like most of the U.S. Corn Belt. In mid-September, the Kentucky office of the National Agricultural Statistics Service estimated the state’s corn crop at 215 million bushels and soybean production at 77.7 million bushels. Both are well above 2011 production.

The University of Kentucky Robinson Center for Appalachian Resource Sustainability in Quicksand is hosting Mountain Ag Week Sept. 23-27.

"The main field day is Sept. 27, but we have activities planned all week," said David Ditsch, director of the center. "We still have the traditional wagon tours of our research plots, but we are also offering focused workshops and tours, where people can really immerse themselves in one or two areas of interest."
