PADUCAH, Ky. - This time last year, local farmers were praying for rain and preparing for the worst come harvest time.

What a difference a year makes. 

The state's agriculture commissioner spoke at Thursday's Paducah Area Chamber of Commerce "Power in Partnership" breakfast.

James Comer says in his travels all across the state, he's seeing very good crops, maybe even too good.

"The grain farming has been exceptional.  We have the best grain crop we've ever had this year in Kentucky.  But the downside to that is there's gonna be a surplus of grain and the price of corn and soybeans goes down every day" Comer said.

Comer wraps up his week-long tour of western Kentucky this weekend.

He is on the list of political speakers for Saturday's Fancy Farm Picnic.
