With the heavy rain this past weekend in southern Georgia along with large hail in some southwestern counties, Georgia farmers are reeling. I have seen a number of pictures showing fields washed out by the rain, causing damage that could take thousands of dollars to repair. I have also heard some reports of hail damage and seen pictures of hail up to 2 inches in size in SW Georgia, which will also cause a lot of economic losses. Vegetable and Specialty Crop News posted a story from one farmer near Tifton and the damage he saw. You can view it here.
