Moultrie - Cotton and peanuts are soggy at Spence Field.

The fields will be used to show off new technology in the upcoming Sunbelt Ag Expo in Moultrie.

So far, they have lost 20 percent of the cotton yield.

When you combine storms caused by Frances, Ivan and Jeanne, the Expo crops got at least 11 inches of rain in three weeks.

Expo Coordinator, Chip Blalock, says "Ivan gave us a little rain, but Frances and Jeanne were the ones that brough the rain and wind, it really has done a number of cotton crop throughout our region."

Expo crops are insured. Harvesting profits go toward the show which starts on October 19th.
