Wet Winter Could Delay Georgia Watermelon Plantings

Vegetable and Specialty Crop News posted a story this week on delays in planting watermelons due to wet soils in south Georgia. Some areas are almost three weeks behind due to the excessive rainfall in February and early March. If the producers have to wait too long to plant, the melons may not be ready to harvest by the July 4th holiday, which would result in significant losses to them.
