The Fayette County Farm Bureau held their annual crop survey on Monday and as expected, it showed a broad range across the county. While it was expected that numbers would vary in different parts of the county, Fayette County Farm Bureau President Ken Cripe said it varied a bit more than they expected.
When it comes to looking at the history of the crop survey in Fayette County, their averages from the survey as compared to the numbers of the USDA have been very close according to Farm Bureau Manager Stephanie Kraus.
