“Too much rain forcing Alabama farmers to make tough decisions”

In contrast to last year, when a late-season drought and subsequent dry conditions early this year caused problems with lack of moisture, this spring and summer so far Alabama farms have been inundated with rain, leaching nutrients from the soil and forcing farmers to replant or make other management changes to their farm plans. The plants have also been stressed by herbicide damage and farmers are concerned that any further stress will reduce yields on their crops. You can read more at the Southeast Farm Press here.
