Mississippi Crop Progress Report:  April 11, 2011

According to the National Agricultural Statistics Service in Mississippi, there were 4.6 days suitable for fieldwork for the week ending Sunday, April 10, 2011. Fieldwork was slowed down last week by rain showers, but the outlook for farmers is generally optimistic. The first rice plantings emerged and wheat saw significant increases in heading. Major cotton plantings, however, have yet to start. Soil moisture was rated 2 percent very short, 9 percent short, 81 percent adequate, and 8 percent surplus.
