More than $2 million have been directed to research projects aimed at increasing profitability for Kentucky's small grain farmers.

MARKETs

We are dedicated to strengthening existing markets and finding new markets for Kentucky's small grain farmers.

Education

KySGGA supports a number of farmer education initiatives and events, as well as directs farmers to the latest production information.

pROMOTION

The USDA released the results from the 2012 Ag Census this spring. We made note of the farms and acres devoted to small grain production in the Commonwealth.
