Harvesting season is in full swing and agricultural experts say the weather is nice and dry for picking peanuts and cotton.
But, officials with the Farming Extension office in Colquitt County say the dry spell hasn't meant good news for certain farmers during the growing season.
Colquitt County Extension Agent Glenn Beard says, "It's just according to where you were ... we've had areas in our county that have severe drought, and the yields are going to reflect that, then we've had areas that had adequate moisture during the course of the summer, so it was a mixed bag during the growing season."
Beard says a drought can mean much lower profits when it comes time for farmers to cash out.
He says lack of rain can lower a field's production from 1,500 down to 200 pounds of cotton an acre.
Farmers won't know exactly how much they've earned until they finish harvesting later this year.
