County Extension Comments

“Soybeans show impressive growth. Bermudagrass is still slow for the season, but alfalfa is nearly ready for second cutting.”
–Heather Kolich, Forsyth County, District 20

“After three relatively dry weeks, rain at end of the week helped relieve moisture stress on all crops. Fall armyworm confirmed in hayfield.”
–Wade Hutcheson, Spalding County, District 40

“Warm season pasture grasses are under pressure from very dry conditions. Hay pasture not recovering normally after the second cutting. Late harvested wheat has shown issues with vomitoxin with several producers. Corn continues to be stressed by hot, dry conditions.”
–Keith Fielder, Putnam County, District 50

“Hit and miss showers daily. Some areas very dry. Watermelon harvest close to wrapping up.”
–Tucker Price, Cook County, District 80

“Limited locations in the county have received some pop up showers while the majority of the county needs a great rain event. Non-irrigated fields are exhibiting stress. Aphid populations in cotton are heavy, but the aphid fungus is beginning to show up.”
–Phillip Edwards, Irwin County, District 80
