December Weather and Cotton Expectations 12-1-22 This fall has given us almost everything we could ask for in terms of weather and while we have had several half-inches or so rains since last week, the ground continues to hold up pretty good. Looking at the 10-day forecast indicates several half-a-chances at less than a few hundredths to a tenth or so each time. Basically, we have finally cleared out the cotton that was called in October which was right in the middle of the 3-week period that 70% of the whole crop was picked. Nevertheless, we will move through the early November called in cotton during the next couple of weeks if the weather does like ‘the man’ says. We have not even had to implement ‘Operation Mud Truck’ yet.
Overall, it is just a testament to the farmers
We still have a dozen or so folks picking so the final projections could vary but we should be finished ginning the 2022 crop this month.
