    County Extension Comments

    “Condition for baling is very good. Most of the rain has gone either to the north or south of the county.”
    –Brian Muddy, Troup County, District 40

    “A lot of rain came Saturday and Sunday throughout the county.”
    –John H. Pope, Monroe County, District 50

    “Timely rainfall slightly improved pasture conditions and dry land corn this week. Warm season hay and grazing lands are in general decline due to weather conditions. Corn continues to display signs of heat stress. Soybeans received timely rainfall to aid in germination and emergence this week.”
    –Keith Fielder, Putnam County, District 50

    “Overall, crops in Miller County are doing well. We are finding foliage feeders in peanuts and a few fields of cotton have spider mites. Low disease pressure, but with rain predicted we are staying on a standard peanut fungicide schedule.”
    –Brock Ward, Miller County, District 70
