John is the son of no-till pioneer, Harry Young Jr., who was the first commercial farmer to plant no-till corn back in 1962 in Herndon Kentucky. John describes how a modern no-till planter functions and compares it to his fathers prototype planter.
A team of soil scientists at the University of Kentucky presented promising results to farmers at a field day that shows a breakthrough in the fragipan, a cement-like layer in the soil, that is common in many parts of the United States. This discovery could mean an increase in producer's yields and their bottom line.

They are not using the "D" word, drought, in Kentucky this year, but a prolonged dry spell has producers looking at ways to irrigate their crops, especially corn, that was robbed of much needed rain at a crucial development stage. That's why agronomists with the University of Kentucky are continuing to research ways to provide added moisture for the soil.

Spring in Kentucky means harvest time for canola, a crop that is not widely grown in the Bluegrass State, but may be gaining momentum. Thanks to a new canola oilseed crushing facility that opened last year in Kentucky, more canola growers may soon be coming on line, now there is a plant where they can take the crop in their home state.
