ALBANY, GA (WALB) - So far South Georgia cotton and peanut crops are doing well this year. Farmers tell us they have consistent rain to thank for that.

Worth County has gotten rain the past few weekends. Farmers say that's putting them on a path to good yields, but they will need regular rainfall to continue through harvest time. Even with good yields, farmers say soaring costs will keep their profits low.

"The prices are good on all of the commodities, but everything has gone up and tripled. And with the price of fertilizer and diesel, I don't think a lot of money will be made. There is going to be a lot of money changing hands, but not a lot will be left in the farmers hands," said Dougherty and Worth farmer, Laney Wooten.

The consistent rain also benefits cattle farmers because the cows have more grass to graze on.
