Because of the heat, Kentucky crops are going from bad to worse.

The National Agricultural Statistic Service reported Tuesday that the amount of corn that was rated good-to-excellent, fell by 19-percent in just one week because of dry weather and 100-degree temperatures.

The state's corn crop, according to the Service is:
  • 48-percent poor or very poor.
  • 32-percent fair.
  • 19-percent good.
  • 1-percent excellent.
The Service report said the state's soybean crop is also suffering due to the weather conditions.
