ABSTRACT
The article reports that better yield is expected in Alabama in 2004. It informs that in Southeast for 2004, most of areas are reporting fair to good yields despite a succession of tropical storms in August and September. Alabama growers are even expecting record-high yields for their corn and soybean crops. With more than half of Alabama's 2004 cotton crop harvested, producers were expecting production of 810,000 bales with a yield of 727 pounds of lint per acre harvested from 535,000 acres. Cotton yields in the state are better than initially expected in southwest Alabama, where damage occurred from tropical storms.
