Georgia farmers continue to cope with losses from Hurricane Michael

Georgia Trends has a good story and recap of Hurricane Michael’s impact on Georgia agriculture from July 1. It tallies the losses to forestry and pecans as well as some other crops. Devastating! Most of the recovery is being done by loans since the recovery money from the federal government has yet to appear. You can read the story at https://www.georgiatrend.com/2019/07/01/dealing-with-disaster/.

The Southeast Farm Press has a related story about how pecan farmers are dealing with losses from the storm, too. You can read it here.
