  • By Gary Carter, Co. ext. agent
    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.

  • The farm is approximately 860 acres and is farmed by Chad Whitaker, Jarrod Walker, Addison Thomson, Megan Baxter, Kevin Farrell and Lucas Myers. The event was hosted by the Harrison County Extension Service, FSA, FFA students and the soil conservation district. The meal was provided by the Harrison County Beef Cattle Association.

  • I had picked loads of cherry tomatoes by this time last year.  
    The hot spring worked to the advantage of ripening tomatoes by the 4th of July.  
    This year has played out a little differently but the tomatoes don’t seem to mind; they look great, have generous fruit set and will be ripening soon enough.
