Rain Rain

This Friday and Saturday have offered the most widespread rainfall event in the Georgia peanut belt since the drought began.

The weather forecast is now for rain chance to diminish and temps to rise again this week.

Because we have not yet had a tropical event we will need rainfall on a regular basis and temperatures need to moderate at night if we are to reach potential on what we do have planted.

It is my observation that cotton may only have a 60 to 70 percent stand on average across the belt and peanuts maybe as high as 90 percent. There are few perfect stands anywhere.
