Harvesting is picking up speed, especially in the more droughty areas of the state. More fields are turning brown as each day passes. These early harvested fields are producing some low yields. The plants were “knee” high or less and the bolls were small. In fact, small bolls have been noted statewide. Likely due to the environmental conditions they were produced under.
