This article focuses on Georgia's farm commodities. This information is according to Georgia Farm Outlook and Planning Guide. Despite the effects of three hurricanes, most Georgia row crops still performed well this past year, although fruit, vegetable and pecan crops were damaged. Prices for major row crops such as cotton, corn and soybeans trended downward during 2004. The price outlook for 2005, according to the guide, is generally stable and possibly higher for most of Georgia's major row crops, with cotton being the exception. Corn and soybean prices could be improved from 2004 levels while peanut prices are expected to stay at last year's levels. Farmers suffered through high fuel costs during 2004, and the outlook for 2005 promises much of the same. Farming operations will be impacted by higher fertilizer costs, continued high fuel prices, and for some crops increased seed and technology costs.
