Georgia Field Reports: Rains Bring Harvest Difficulties

Crop Progress and Condition for the Week Ending November 11, 2018.

County Comments

Steven Patrick, Habersham County
Much needed rainfall gave fall-planted forages a boost.

Charlie Todd, Jasper County
A lot of precipitation slowed the planting of small grains and made pecan farmers continue to wait for a dry period before they could resume harvesting.

Brent Allen, Washington County
Rain delayed the harvest of cotton, peanuts, and soybeans as the crops continued to decline seasonally. Some soybeans and peanuts sprouted. All livestock producers fed hay.

Luke Crosson, Calhoun County
Recent heavy rains slowed cotton and peanut harvesting. Farmers continued to deal with the impacts of Hurricane Michael.

Justin Shealey, Echols County
All of the remaining cotton in the county started to lose quality from daily heavy rains and from being defoliated for more than two weeks.
