The latest release from the National Agriculture Statistics Service shows that 79 percent of subsurface soils are short on moisture, according to Growing Georgia.   This continuing lack of rainfall has caused crops like soybeans, cotton and peanuts to fade and pastures to stop producing grass.  Even crops that were going to be baled for filler are not doing well.  You can read the story here.

However, for fields that did feel rain from the spotty showers, there is still some hope.  Rome Etheridge of Seminole County reports that some dryland farms will still make a crop in spite of some rot on the pods.  You can read his blog here.

Unfortunately, the forecast for the next two weeks shows that below normal rainfall conditions are likely to continue for everywhere except for areas right next to the coast.
