I received this latest update on our tobacco crop this year and I thought it was interesting and I wanted to share it with everyone.
Obviously, 2007 was not a typical tobacco production year for any area of Kentucky. According to the Kentucky Farm Business Management (KFBM) program records for 2007, wide variation existed across the state. Post buy-out Kentucky has also seen considerable shifts in tobacco production. Some areas have seen sharp acreage declines, while other areas, especially western Kentucky, have experienced increases in tobacco acreage.
