Office of Agricultural Marketing
The mission of the Office of Agricultural Marketing is to assists farmers, agricultural businesses, and commodity groups in promoting and marketing their products by expanding existing markets and developing domestic and international markets for their goods and services.
Plant Marketing serves Kentucky farmers looking to enhance or develop markets for a variety of horticultural crops. Our marketing specialists serve farmers' markets, fruit and vegetable growers, ornamental agriculture producers, and certified organic farmers. The Forage Testing Program collects samples of hay and other forages and tests them for nutritional value for a nominal fee. This service helps growers improve the quality of their forages and gives livestock producers the data they need to formulate efficient, healthful rations for their animals. The program also maintains a Hay Sales Directory where producers can list hay for sale. The KDA’s Forage Testing Program is certified by the National Forage Testing Association.
