Rain No Big Help to Farmers

A good soaking rain, that's what South Plains cotton producers say they need and it appears some are getting it right now.

Brad Heffington, a Littlefield cotton producer says, "Yesterday's rain didn't do anything to change the picture of the crop right now."  Heffington says that it would take an inch of rainfall to really make an impact on dry land and irrigated crops. He says anything below that evaporates in the heat.

Without more rain, Heffington says it's his opinion that this year's crop would be half as big as it was last year.
