Grain markets this fall are suggesting producers should store their corn and soybeans. The question is whether storage is going to pay off.

“As fall progresses, producers need to know their break-even price, have patience and watch the local markets for advantageous situations to sell stored grain,” said Todd Davis, agricultural economist for the University of Kentucky College of Agriculture, Food and Environment.

The work of one University of Kentucky College of Agriculture, Food and Environment student to help eliminate poaching in Africa is receiving national attention.

Agriculture economics student Abdelaziz Lawani developed a program that uses drones to identify and fight animal poaching in West Africa. Lawani is training locals in Benin on how to use this technology.

His work attracted the attention of Chelsea Clinton, vice chair of the Clinton Foundation. She named him as a young person who inspires her in a Boston Globe op-ed.
