Most Farmers Find Recent Rain Beneficial

South Plains cotton is a concern following Tuesday night's storms. For the past four years, severe weather caused significant damage to crops. In 2002, cotton fields near Crosbyton were wiped out by gusty winds and tennis ball sized hail over the Memorial Day weekend.

Vice President of Operations for Plains Cotton Growers, Roger Haldenby says, "The last couple of days, we've seen beneficial rainfall across a lot of the area. In some small areas, there has actually been some damaging hail, which is something that is part of life on the high plains of Texas."

For those farmers whose cotton was damaged by the hail, Haldenby says they may have up to another week to replace their crop.
