Planting Season Underway
For most of our area, the recent rain has actually been a good thing for planting season.
Farmers in Headland tell us that the 13 inches we received last week helped prep their soil for the peanut, cotton, and corn.
Prior to last week, farmers were experiencing some trouble getting their crops into the dry soil.
However with the fields well saturated now, planting has been going smoothly.
Corn planting is wrapping up today, and we are already seeing some corn stalks poking through.
Peanuts and cotton will be going in the ground today and through the remainder of this week
