Coming out of the wettest combined April and May on record, Kentucky agriculture producers are dealing with a multitude of problems including flooding and increased disease, according to Tom Priddy, UK Extension meteorologist.
Data from Jan. 1 to May 31 reveals Kentucky’s wettest year on record with an average 31.38 inches of rainfall statewide. That figure surpasses the previous record of 31.18 inches set in 1950.
Here, at the Trimble County Extension Office, I recorded almost 24 inches of rainfall for April and May and over 18 inches of rainfall in Milton.
