The article presents information on the yield forecasts for row crops in lower southeastern states of the U.S. for the year 2004. Yields are expected to be down slightly from last year's yields. Most crops, however, still are rated in the good to excellent range in Georgia, Florida and Alabama. Production in Georgia is down for all crops except for soybeans from a year ago, according to the state's agricultural statistics service. In Florida, frequent but scattered rains during July 2004 kept soil moisture supplies adequate to surplus in most areas while still allowing farmers to harvest tobacco and cut hay.
