BRINGING HOME THE COTTON – Savannah Frields and Sam Emberton offered a helping hand over the weekend at Keith Davis’ farm as Davis was busy harvesting cotton fields along New Home Road outside of Martin. Weakley County Ag Extension agent Jeff Lannom reported farmers in Weakley County have planted 4,300 acres of cotton this year. “Picking is going well. There has been good weather and it has been fairly dry making for a good harvest. Farmers are telling me they are harvesting a bale of cotton per acre. There are roughly 480 pounds of cotton in one bale,” Lannom said.
