Drought conditions affecting planting season
Drought conditions affecting planting season.
The late winter and early spring months of 2017 brought weather less than ideal for planting.
South Alabama Planting Update Alabama Extension crops specialist William Birdsong said rain is needed to really kick off the planting season in the Wiregrass.
“Dry soil conditions have hindered planting here as well,” Birdsong said.
“The planted corn looks very good and farmers are spraying to control weeds.
Producers are also making fertilizer applications.” Most of the corn in the Wiregrass area has irrigation, and farmers have already begun watering.
Farmers are hopeful this year, but getting a spring planting rain is critical to the beginning of this crop season.
