Cotton field before defoliation, Morgan County (GA). October 2007
Overall, the cotton harvest in Morgan County would not be a good one this year, due to the historic drought that has plagued the state. The cotton is so low that special equipment had to be obtained to strip the cotton from this year's low-to-the-ground cotton plants.
This field on GA 83 is located next to a sod farm field which received regular irrigation all summer long. The run-off ended up here and the cotton plants closest to the sod field benefited greatly.
