Tropical moisture is helping Southeast farmers

We are less than a week away from the start of the 2022 Atlantic hurricane season.

This video on TikTok shows the beautiful aftermath of last week’s rain in south Georgia on Sirmans Farms. The tropical action did not materialize into a named storm, but the rain it brought helped farmers across the southeast.

“From a standpoint of agriculture, this has actually been a boon because we had seen considerable drying in parts of the southeast over the last month. It’s helped boost topsoil moisture, it’s helped with pastures and emerging summer crops. So not all tropical moisture is bad and this unnamed undeveloped tropical system has actually done some good for the southeast before the official start of the 2022 Atlantic hurricane season.”

Hurricane season gets underway Wednesday, June 1st.
