Crop Progress and Condition for the Week Ending July 14, 2019.
Belinda Woods, Cullman County
County received 1-2 inches of rain due to tropical storm this weekend, but we need more rainfall for crops to flourish. Pastures and hay land should green back up after receiving rain.
Jeffrey Smith, Tallapoosa County
Much needed rain fell over the weekend associated with the Tropical Storm Barry. However, rainfall amounts were scattered with some areas receiving over an inch and other less than half inch. Cotton, peanuts, and soybeans are all in need of a good soaking rain at this point.
Carol Nicholson, Bullock County
Southeast area of the county remains dry. The rest of the county has received rainfall. Majority of the corn crop in the county will likely be a total loss due to dry weather. All other crops are good at this time. Grass is good for most of the county.
Zachary Burns, Marshall County
The county is very dry and the crops are suffering.
