Georgia corn yields reduced due to heavy rain in some areas

The Packer reported this week that the sweet corn season is winding down in Georgia, just about at the average time for ending the harvest here.  They noted that Georgia corn yields are expected to be lighter than usual due to heavy rains in some areas, which could lead to reduced supplies going into the July 4th holiday.  Corn in the Northeast is running about a week behind normal due to weather conditions there, which will add to the low supplies.  You can read the article here.

The Southeast Farm Press also ran a brief article noting that stink bugs have been more of a problem than usual in some South Carolina fields due to the warm winter, which allowed more insects than usual to overwinter.  That article can be found here.
