  • Extension Office welcomes intern

    Kyle Schenck, son of Larry and Anita Schenck of Boston, began his twelve week internship at the LaRue County Extension Office on May 15.

    For the summer, he will be working with Misty Wilmoth, the County 4-H Agent, and with the 4-H program. You might have already seen him working with others in the office, like kicking off the Farmer’s Market May 16 at the Ag Market Day. He will be helping in all Extension programs, not just 4-H.

  • Needle cast causing skimpy spruce trees

    By far, the number one call I’ve gotten here at the LaRue County Extension Office over the last 2-3 months has been homeowners concerned about their Spruce trees. A tree is a long term investment, and when you plant a tree, you watch it grow over the years and develop into something beautiful that provides you with a windbreak, shade, etc. It’s very disheartening when a tree that you planted 20 years ago, that has become a focal point in the landscape, turns into an eyesore practically overnight.

  • Transferring your farm to the next generation

    The average age of farm operators in Kentucky is increasing, and over the next several years, many farm families will consider transitioning their farm to the next generation.

  • Lawmakers eye THC content of state’s industrial hemp

     Around 100 pounds of industrial hemp grown under Kentucky’s three-year old Industrial Hemp Research Pilot Program were destroyed last month after the state found the crop had a higher THC level than the law allows.

    An April 13 Associated Press article on the destroyed crop reported that it registered THC levels of between 1.2 and 0.4 percent, or slightly above the federal and state legal limit of 0.3 percent.
