Tale of Two Cotton Harvests

Some cotton farmers are describing it as a tale of two cotton harvests.

They say they've never seen such a diverse crop as this year.

Some growers are reporting a positive cotton crop, but others say it's the worst they've ever seen.

Some believe the spring drought coupled with "hit-and-miss" summer showers is responsible for the mixed results.

The dry weather has pushed the harvest way back this year.

Some farmers expect to be working the cotton crop into Christmas.

This year, growers have approximately 18-thousand acres tied-up in cotton across Coffee County.
