OKOLONA, Miss. (WTVA) -- Bobby Carnathan farms from 6,000 acres in Chickasaw County.
There will be no field work today. It's just too wet.
"It's just gonna make weeds grow and grass grow," said Carnathan.
Carnathan has already lost one crop this year because of the rain. He had to start over. He's hoping that won't happen again.
"Three to three and a half inches or rain in a short period of time and it got me," said Carnathan.
The lifelong farmer lost 624 acres of corn.
He replaced it with soybeans. Some farmers chose to replace corn with cotton.
MSU Extension Service Agent Charlie Stokes says rain is not a problem - at least not yet.
"Most of these growers still have a lot of field work to be done and finishing planting etc. etc., so they would like for this stuff to get out of here," said Stokes.
"That's going to be a problem if it keeps raining. Other than that, everything looks good," added Carnathan.
He hopes it stays that way, but with scattered thunderstorms in the forecast for the next six days, he may have cause to worry.
