The USDA released the results from the 2012 Ag Census in 2014. We made note of the farms and acres devoted to small grain production in the Commonwealth. While the Kentucky Field Office of the National Agricultural Statistics Office regularly keeps data on wheat produced within the Commonwealth, the 5-year census is the only document that reports on lesser small grains.
