South Carolina Flood Story – Farmers

Posted by romeethredge on December 4, 2015

South Carolina county agent, Justin Ballew, has a great video on his website about the farmers perspective of the South Carolina flood this past fall. Click here to go to his blog and the video. 

It has several farmers and other ag leaders telling the story and some good video.

One thing that was said is that the loss was over $400 Million. Also there were 3 strikes against agriculture in SC this year, 1. Low commodity prices, 2.Drought and then 3.Rain and flooding and rain again.

I pray that things will go better for the growers there and growers all over who are facing tough times.

Growers have been offered $400 contracts for 2015 and there has been some interest from growers at this price.   Shelled prices are in the high 40 cents range.  The large carryover stocks will keep a lid on prices.  Low corn and cotton price will influence some growers to move to more peanuts. Georgia and US acreage likely to increase due to generic base and PLC reference price of $535 per ton.
