Good crop

Susan Montgomery

The cotton harvest looks good, and that has brightened the farming picture in Leflore County along with the current dry and sunny  fall weather that makes it easier to quickly get crops out of the field. Andy Braswell, the county’s Extension agent, said cotton’s being defoliated and picked, and combines are running up and down soybean fields. “Everywhere I look, I see combines,” he said. Meanwhile, the corn crop has almost completely been harvested, and rice also appears to be doing well. Here, a cotton field near Itta Bena looks like it’s loaded with bolls.
