  • 4-H Membership

  • Last week, LaRue County High School sophomore Casey McMillen spent his fall break harvesting sorghum.

    His family’s rediscovery of the nearly-lost art of sorghum-making tied in with an FFA project for McMillen, who is working on his State FFA degree. To obtain his State FFA degree he must earn or invest $1,500 or work 1,000 hours. He must also be an FFA member for three consecutive years and complete state, national and regional requirements.

    After experimenting with a few other activities, McMillen decided sorghum fit the bill.

  • Corn, soybean and wheat prices have all done well this summer. As a result, grain farmers may be considering planting more wheat this fall and follow with a soybean double crop. However, double crop soybeans are more susceptible to summer drought, and typically yield about 20 percent less than full season soybeans. Let’s consider an example of a planting decision and possible implications using a UK Ag. Economics web based decision aid.

  • The Kentucky Division of Forestry is preparing for an active wildfire season this year as low humidity, low fuel moisture and increased fuel loads ­could cause high to very high burning conditions.   

  • Soil samples taken during dry falls tend to result in soil pH and soil test potassium being unusually low. This results in recommendations that overestimate lime and K (potassium) fertilizer that may be needed.

    Recently, University of Kentucky soil test labs began a new test for soil pH to solve the problem occurring with lower pH levels in soil samples taken in dry falls.
