High Winds

Posted by romeethredge on July 2, 2015

We had some high winds or tornadic activity in Southern Seminole and Decatur Counties this week. Here we see a couple of corn fields that were partially flattened. They were about a week from being made, a week from black layer. This is very unfortunate because now harvest will be very difficult here and much corn will be lost. Fortunately it was not too widespread.

Some hybrids were affected worse than others. This is part of a hybrid test plot we had at the Mims farm, in Reynoldsville._DSC2730 _DSC2728

At least one pivot was also overturned, and several trees, shelters, barns and some porches were affected.
