Weather forecast could mean feast or famine for Wiregrass

Aug 10, 2019

Farmers in Alabama’s wiregrass region may be watching the weather forecast closely over the next couple of weeks. Predictions of consistent rains in the coming days could produce strong cotton and peanut crops in Alabama. On the other hand, any dry spells could mean trouble as peanuts and cotton approach their peak water needs. The Dothan Eagle reports that parts of Alabama have experienced good rainfall at times this summer. However, southeastern Alabama remains generally dry.
