As tropical storm Barry barreled down on Louisiana shores with heavy rains, mid-coast farmers in the Texas Coastal Bend were harvesting what county agricultural agents are hinting at a bumper year for grain sorghum and corn, reports Southwest FarmPress.

Harvest is running a week or two behind schedule this year thanks to a late start to the planting season because of heavy rains and wind events in early spring.

“I would say we’re about a third of the way through sorghum harvest in Nueces County, and the machines are running hard every day to bring the crop in," Nueces County Agent Jason Ott told Southwest Farm Press. "The corn has dried down as well but farmers want to get the sorghum in before they move over to corn. Both crops are looking exceptionally good."
