Recent showers, however, should Improve the outlook for late planted cotlon mui help mature bolls on old cotton. "But, unfortunately," the report suld, "there nre wide expanses of the slnlc Hint have not uecn fn- vorcd with rnln."'' Rice is heading nnd maturing fnsl, Ifarvcsl of n few fields Is inideiwny. Cutting nnd combining of early varieties is expected to be well started by Sept. 15. Th e outlook continues promising in tien- cral allhongli some fields have not had enough water. This lack of wilier, coupled with high temperatures during filling, may reduce yields in some fields, the report said. . , Most of the earliest corn made before the drought set in and is matured or ncnring maturity now. Harvesting of the earliest fields is startini; on a limited scale. Most medium or late planted corn- is too fin- gone now to recover nnd make much more than a little fodder or furnish .some grazing. Lntc corn on bottom land is res|»nclin(r to the replonished soil moisture in fnvorcil localities nnd may yet make a considerable amount of feed. | Sorghums nre holding up fairly •well, and some good yields arc in prospect even though most fields nre only fair. The crop is being helped materially in areas favored recently with showers. Strawberry beds have deteriorated in all producing areas. Gets to the Job... and Gets It Done!
