Farmers in several counties will be able to tap into more than $1.2 million set aside for agricultural investments.

The Kentucky Agricultural Development Board approved the money last week.

The Boyle County Farm Bureau will receive $324,000, the largest single amount announced. The Washington County Cattlemen Association will receive $315,000, followed by the Todd County Conservation District that received $300,000.

The money will go to farmers primarily for agricultural diversification projects.
