CALIFORNIA CROP WEATHER FOR THE WEEK ENDING Sep 16, 2012: Corn for silage continued to be chopped, and
corn for grain was drying down. Over a third of cotton bolls were open by week’s end. The rice crop was progressing
well, and heading was nearly complete. Crop harvest was underway and growers started harvest of short grain rice.
Cotton and rice crops were rated mostly good to excellent. Producers were preparing for harvest. Alfalfa continued to be
cut, raked and baled across the state. Some hay fields were treated for various insects, although it was reported insect
pressure was light. Sunflower crop was progressing through the dry down process; the yellow bracts were turning brown
and the brown bracts were being harvested. Black-eyed peas were being cut and windrowed in southern Tulare County.
Producers started planting their winter small grain crops; however, the majority of producers were still preparing ground.
