Crop Progress and Condition for the Week Ending October 21, 2018.
David Dewitt, Kershaw County
Rain soaked fields delayed harvest. The quality of cotton and peanuts is deteriorating as well.
Hugh B, Gray, Allendale County
A week with no delays in harvesting or small grain planting permitted good progress. Soybean harvest slowed as most growers planted late maturing varieties due to rainy conditions in late May and early June. Soybean harvest should resume at full speed in a week or so. No crop insect or disease problems.
Mark Nettles, Orangeburg County
Fall greens were progressing at a good rate. Harvesting of cotton and peanuts was progressing. Most soybeans were yellowing.
Charles Davis, Calhoun County
