There’s been an uptick of wheat acres in Kentucky, according to Agronomist Chad Lee.
“Because the fall was dry and farmers had opportunity to plant wheat, there are a few more acres that got planted,” he says. “But there’s also a lot of cover crop that went in too. And so, we’re going to find out in the next two weeks which of those fields were designed for grain and which ones were designed to cover crop.”
He says regardless of the reason, it’s a good thing.
