KY could see worst corn crop in 30 years

Kentucky could see one of the worst corn crops in nearly 30 years, thanks to the hottest July on record.

An average statewide corn yield of 65 bushels an acre is predicted this year.

That’s down 74 bushels from last year’s crop.

It would be the lowest yield since the 1983 crop produced 48 bushels per acre.
