Around The Caprock: March 1-5
This week's editions of Around the Caprock on the Texas Farm Bureau Radio Network were highlighted by conversations about what's to be expected for two major local crops: corn and cotton.
During the week, we also discussed upcoming USDA deadlines for area farmers, our region's prolonged drought, and where we might be headed with hemp production in our region .
