Farmers in Southwest Georgia are hoping the soggy weather dries out some.

Early County Extension Agent Brian Cresswell says things look decent right now.

The water table is full again, but on the flip side all this rain has caused the soil to become water logged.

Cresswell says more rain will lead to crop delays.

"If it rains like they're talking about this next week you know, 50%, 60% chance everyday, it's going to really start to hurt some of those crops that we got. Everyone says we're going to make a bumper crop because it has rained but that's not necessarily true," Cresswell said.

The moisture has also given farmers a late start on fertilizer and weed control.
