MACON, Ga. (AP) -- Farmers in central Georgia say they're optimistic for a good crop year, despite a drier-than-normal spring.
The Macon Telegraph reports that one reason for their optimism is that most of the largest row crops -- including peanuts, cotton and soybeans -- haven't been planted.
Farmers say they're waiting for rain to have enough moisture in the ground for the seeds to germinate.
They say that some early crops appear to be in good condition, including winter wheat.
One summer crop that has been planted is corn. Jeff Cook, county agent for Peach and Taylor counties, said corn is in good shape because most of it is irrigated.
