After the heavy rainfall of the past week I am sure most farmers have surveyed their crops. So far most reports seem to be, we got lucky compared to the surrounding counties. Rainfall seems to run from three-five inches in the three day period with a few spots receiving more.
What effects are showing? Tobacco seems to be the plant that shows the greatest damage. Drowned plants in low, poorly drained areas seems to be constant throughout. The crop also shows a very poor root system which is unable to pick up nutrients.
