AFTER LAST week’s rains, farmers returned to the fields this week to continue the soybean and cotton harvest. This soybean field was being harvested along the Tensas River near Clayton on Tuesday. LSU AgCenter Agent Kylie Miller said that with the “cotton harvest kicked off and some remaining beans left in the field, last week’s rain was not ideal. We received around four to five inches of rain from Beta that halted harvest operations and fall field work progress. We need October to be a much drier month to finish up this year’s growing season successfully.” (Concordia Sentinel photo)
