Cordele- South Georgia farmers are keeping a close eye on hurricane Frances.

The storm will bring heavy rain that could damage soon to be harvested crops like cotton and peanuts. Farmers in Crisp County are concerned, but counties south of there could experience worse damage.

Ken Lewis, Crisp County extension coordinator explains"We look down toward the Miller county, Early county, Donalsonville area. Those growers would be impacted much much greater because they are a couple weeks ahead of us. they already have a lot of cotton defoliated. They already have peanuts on top of the grounds. Those guys do not want this storm to come through."

Heavy wind and rain could also have a damaging impact on corn and soy beans.
