    County Comments

    James Jones Jr, Henry County
    Cool soil conditions continued. Received some good rainfall this week. Peanut and cotton plantings are a little behind normal. Some hay cuttings this week. 

    Belinda Woods, Cullman County
    County is still experiencing unseasonably cool overnight and early morning temperatures. Spring planting is behind schedule due to rain.

    Carol Nicholson, Bullock County
    Grass for hay and grazing are really good at this time. Received adequate rainfall. Corn has been planted and crops such as cotton, peanuts and soybeans are being planted at this time.

    Tim Malone, Marion County
    Frost continued. Some corn that was planted early will have to be replanted due to wet conditions this week. Fungicide had to be flown on wheat as producers could not get through the fields.
