Large Grain Crop May Call for Alternative Storage
Many large grain producers in west Kentucky are reporting near-record yields of corn and soybeans. In September, National Agriculture Statistics Service estimated that the state’s corn crop is around 215 million bushels and 77.7 million bushels of soybeans. The crops prices are lower than previous years; producers will therefore be looking for short-term storage options. Farmers will plan to store their crops in machinery sheds, reinforced silos, or grain bags to preserve the quality.
