By Teresa H. Bright

The Kentucky Agricultural Development Board recently approved $30,000 in Ag Development Funds for an Adair County Youth Agricultural Incentives Program.

This is a cost-share program, and youth must be enrolled in elementary, middle or high school, or home school and be at least 9 years of age on January 1, 2021. Applications for the Youth Ag Incentives program will be available August 10 - August 31, 2021 at the Adair County Extension Office.

How to obtain an application, beginning on Tuesday, August 10, 2021:
