More impacts of Sally on agriculture

Reports of impacts of Sally on agriculture in the Southeast continue to come in. While the rain from Sally was mostly beneficial in Georgia, softening soils ahead of peanut digging and providing moisture to dry pastures, it caused more damage in coastal Florida where extreme winds and rain devastated farm fields there. Here are a couple of stories about the damage. Note that some pecan producers also noted broken limbs on trees due to the impact of the wind on the heavily-loaded branches.
