South Carolina Field Reports: Weather Hampers Harvest

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

County Comments

Danny Howard, Greenville County
Cooler temperatures and rain.

Charles Davis, Calhoun County
Continued rainfall has hampered the end of the harvest season. Fields have not been able to dry out before the rain comes and the quality of the final harvest is in question.

Mark Nettles, Orangeburg County
Soybean fields still have some greens stalks in them. Some of the beans are showing some decrease in quality. Fall greens were looking really good. There is much cotton to be picked.

Hugh B. Gray, Allendale County
Not much harvesting was accomplished this week due to weather. Damp, overcast days stalled fieldwork most of the week. A couple of weeks of sunshine and favorable weather are needed to wrap up harvesting.
