Headland, AL (WTVY) Extremely wet conditions and flash floods are believed not to have adversely impacted any local cotton crops.

Cotton Fields in Headland, AL flooded with rain.

Area cotton fields have been drenched with rain, leaving the fields flooded with inches of water.

But, with the harvest season almost over, Regional Agronomist, Brandon Dillard, says it's unlikely crops were put in jeopardy.

Cotton is typically harvested from October to mid-December.

He says around 90 percent of cotton has been harvested in the Wiregrass.

Local farmers are reporting a good season overall, however, some AG producers are saying the flooding has negatively impacted the farming landscape.
