South Carolina farmers hit with a triple whammy in 2015

The Southeast Farm Press ran a video and written story earlier this week on the three weather catastrophes that hit South Carolina this year–frost, drought and flooding rains.  The late spring frost cut peach production somewhat, while the drought cut yields of several crops.  When the flooding rains came in early October, they wiped out harvested tobacco that was drying in sheds as well as causing further damage to many of the crops that had already been affected by the drought.
