DAWSON, GA (WALB) - With heavy rain over the last two weeks, some farmers in Southwest Georgia saw positive impacts, with just a few negative impacts on early planted crops.
Mark Daniel, owner of Mark's Melon Patch said crops like sweet corn and tomatoes flourished because of the amount of water needed for daily upkeep.
Due to the rain, watermelons will see the biggest delay because of cool temperatures and stormy weather.
Overall, the Daniel said the rain has done more good than harm to their farm crops.
"If I had it my way, I would probably have about an inch of rain about every five days. That would probably be the ideal perfect-world scenario, but it's not quite like that, but that would probably be ideal. That would almost eliminate most of our irrigation that we have to do," said Daniel.
Daniel said that by June 5, most of their summer crops will be in full-growth mode, producing healthy fruits and vegetables.
