Corn harvest halted by rain

GREENWOOD – Heavy rain over the weekend has temporarily halted corn harvesting.

Jerry Singleton, an agent with the Leflore County Extension Service, said before the rain, Leflore County’s corn harvest was about halfway finished.

Singleton said most farmers are trying to wait until their corn gets down to a moisture content of about 15 percent before they harvest it. He says some crops still have moisture levels of 18 to 20 percent.
