There is Still Time to Become a 2019 Premier Sponsor & Advertiser!  The AgriBusiness Association of Kentucky (ABAK) is proud to offer industry members multiple options for sponsoring and advertising with the association. Sponsorship and advertising opportunities include the Kentucky AgriBusiness Summit, a summer outing, the ABAK membership directory, the bi-monthly electronic newsletter (ABAK E-News), and the all-inclusive premier sponsorship packages.  The most popular, and all-inclusive, option is the premier sponsorship program. The premier sponsorship program allows members to participate in all sponsorship and advertising opportunities throughout the year. Select the level that best suits your organization’s budget and rest assured you’ll receive exposure in every sponsor/ad opportunity throughout the year.  If your organization would rather select different levels of exposure throughout the year, there is also an a la carte option.  Please see the  2019 Sponsorship & Advertising Guide  for details of the opportunities available this year and for a breakout of the premier sponsor levels. If you would like to be a particular level premier sponsor but wish to have a step up in directory advertisement, event sponsorship, etc. rather than the option included in the premier level that otherwise best fits your needs, simply make a note on your contract and we can bill you for the adjusted amount.  Without your involvement, ABAK wouldn’t be able to provide the high-quality meetings, educational events, and programming that members expect.  Please consider becoming an ABAK premier sponsor or advertiser this year! If you have any questions, feel free to call Stacy Wallace at the ABAK office at (502) 226-1122.

Dicamba Guidance.png

Commissioner Quarles has reached out to ABAK regarding the Kentucky Department of Agriculture’s (KDA) final decision on Dicamba use and pending regulations regarding sales, record keeping, and increased penalties for bad actors. The KDA has decided that there will be NO cut-off application date in the 2019 season.

While there may be some additional requirements for sales agents, the commissioner is making every effort to reach a fair solution in Kentucky that will allow this crop production tool to be used responsibly over the next two years.

In the immediate future, all applicators must go through additional mandatory training approved by the KDA. If you completed training in 2018, it is no longer valid and you must retrain for 2019. We will do our best to communicate training opportunities as we learn of them.
