Farmers take advantage of dry conditions to plant cotton and peanuts
Wed, 30 May 2012 00:16:34 GMT — It is said people TMs mood can be affected by the weather, but for a farmer, it affects their livelihood. After talking to local farmers I've realize farming conditions are touchy subject. Too much rain early in the season usually means they are unable to seed, then again, too little rain means the same. The different crops demands different conditions, with corn liking the conditions opposite of peanuts. As of now, U.G.A. Extension Agent Janier Jordan says, "We've actually need more rain then we've gotten; this ground right here could be too dry in two or three days to plant cotton." He then went on to say if they had too much rain they wouldn't be out working today.
