Crop Progress and Condition for the Week Ending June 30, 2019.

County Comments

Tyler Sandlin, Lauderdale County
Sporadic rainfall has occurred for much of the area with some areas receiving plentiful amounts while others have received very little.

Jeffrey Smith, Tallapoosa County
First blooms in cotton observed this week. Producers took advantage of the drier first half of the week with herbicide/insecticide applications. Scattered rain showers later in week with the service center picking up 2.0 inches of rain.

Brandon Dillard, Bullock County
Some rain came through the Wiregrass this weekend. Very spotty and not big amounts. Crops were in drought stress as we hit 60 days after planting, a time when moisture is crucial for fruit set. As we go along with no rainfall, yields will start to be negatively affected.

Brenda Glover, Greene County
Dry. Need rain.
