Tennessee Farmers Wrapping Up Fall Harvest, Receive Needed Rain

From the U.S. Department of Agriculture National Agricultural Statistics Service:

Tennessee’s cropland and pastures received much-needed rain early last week, especially on the Eastern side of the state. On average, producers had only 4 days suitable for fieldwork this week, but by week’s end both cotton and soybean harvest had just about reached completion, with only a few areas left. Due to the early-week rainfall, farmers were able to seed a large amount of winter wheat acreage during the second half of the week. Pasture conditions improved slightly last week in response to replenished moisture levels, but cattle producers continued to feed hay, as most pastures have now passed their growing season.
