Tennessee Corn Looks Good despite Spring Flood

October 4, 2011 08:25 PM

Tim Johnston wasn’t sure whether he would be able to get a decent corn crop off the river bottom he farms near Centerview, Tenn., this fall given the floodwaters that swept over his fields last May.

"See that road over there? The water was just about up to it last spring," he says, pointing to a nearby highway overpass.

Fortunately, the waters receded in time for Johnston to get his crop planted, and he is one of the first in his area to start running a combine.

Listen as he gives an overview on his crop and harvest conditions.
