Georgia Field Reports: Peanuts Pegging, Corn Progressing Well

Crop Progress and Condition for the Week Ending July 8, 2018.

County Comments

Raymond Joyce, Laurens County
Rains continued across the county. Growers are spraying for weeds in crops. Peanuts blooming, pegging and setting pods. Corn is progressing well and haying continues.

Ben Cantrell, Effingham County
Many cotton fields that were planted either got washed out in spots due to heavy rains or have been under severe deer pressure. The fields that did not get too much rain during planting have emerged very well and are doing great with no thrips pressure earlier this year. Overall the cotton crop looks great.

Seth McAllister, Terrell County
Cotton is really improving after the trouble we had planting. Corn went way downhill however because rains shut off during peak moisture demands. Peanuts have also improved this week and most fields that were not planted super late are pegging.

Paula Burke, Carroll County
Bermudagrass stem maggot was identified in northern Heard County this week.
