Tennessee requests disaster designation (Southeast Farm Press)
According to the USDA National Agricultural Statistics Service’s weekly crop survey, Tennessee farmers are reporting moderate to severe damages to 39 percent of the state’s corn crop and 21 percent of winter wheat. Damages to fruit and vegetable crops and nursery stock have also been reported as well as significant damage to farm infrastructure including access roads, levees, fences, conservation practices, buildings and equipment. Governor Phil Bredesen has requested a Secretarial designation of natural disaster for agriculture for 13 counties across middle and west Tennessee as a result of the historic rainfall and devastating floods that began April 30. Bredesen made the request this week in a letter to U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack. The 13 counties include: Benton, Chester, Dickson, Fayette, Hardeman, Hickman, Humphreys, Lauderdale, Lewis, Maury, McNairy, Perry and Stewart.
