As North Carolina sees heavy amounts of rain across our state, the wet fields and possible flooding has the potential to cause significant agricultural losses. As an example, estimates for losses already exceed $9 million in the peanut crop alone. Tobacco, Peanuts, Cotton, Soybeans and Sorghum crops are particularly at risk.

If you have questions regarding actions to protect your crops and livestock, please contact your local Cooperative Extension center or the NC Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.   NCDA&CS has also setup a phone hotline at 866-645-9403.

We will also be adding additional resources at ncdisaster.com as the needs become more clear. Below is a document regarding issues with Sorghum.
