Crop Progress and Condition for the Week Ending June 9, 2019.

County Comments

Gina Harris, Walker County
Widespread rain over the weekend has brought the county out of the extreme dry spell. This has helped recently planted crops emerge.

Allie Corcoran, Barbour County
Farmers got some relief from dry conditions with rains at the end of the week. Some areas received over 2 inches. The south end of the county did not receive as much rainfall. Hopefully, crops will be able to rebound from dry conditions with this much needed rain.

Carol Nicholson, Bullock County
It has been extremely dry which has affected the crops. Most of the corn in the county was affected by dry weather. Rain received in the last week has helped, however areas have had excess rain and an evaluation will be made in those areas.

Jimmy Smitherman, Montgomery County
Recent heavy rains beneficial to crops and livestock.

Shannon Parker, Morgan County
Much needed rain received over the weekend. With much of the wheat crop harvested, double crop soybeans going in the ground. Cotton continues to look good.
