Despite the dry summer, there is some good news about a Kentucky crop.

While Corn is suffering, tobacco seems to be doing okay.

Experts say the recent spurt of rain means an average burley tobacco crop.

Just a few weeks ago there was concern the drought would ruin the crop.

UK Agricultural Economist Will Snell says this year's burley crop could sell for higher prices than last year.
