    Crop Progress and Condition for the Week Ending November 10, 2019.

    County Comments

    Morris Warner, Oconee County
    Soybean harvest was moving slowly. Rains over the last several weeks and warm weather have improved pasture conditions greatly.

    W Bruce McLean, Horry County
    There were still a few peanuts in the field needing to be harvested. Sweet potato harvest was pretty much wrapped up. Strawberries and brassicas were looking good. With the cold front coming through mid-week, row covers will likely be going out over strawberries to continue pushing vegetative growth before winter blows in.

    Adam Gore, Abbeville County
    Cotton should be harvested soon, though wet weather may have impact. Pastures have recovered strong.

    Charles Davis, Calhoun County
    Shorter days and morning dew kept harvests of cotton and peanuts subdued. Some cover crops were going in and soil sampling began.
