Farmers from across the Southeast had a keen eye on a big announcement Tuesday afternoon in Bulloch County. National environmental leaders gave them the green light to use one chemical that courts had tried to ban earlier this year.
This time of year, farmers hope and pray for more rain to get peanuts and other crops into the ground. This year, it’s almost too much of a good thing as farmers need fields to dry out a little to get started.
Farmers across our region have a new growing season in front of them with challenges that range from dry conditions to low prices at the market, but one Bulloch County corn grower is proud to be a farmer, regardless.
