If you are trying to make hay in the southeast, particularly in south Georgia, expect scattered showers with isolated patches of thunderstorms located over the hay field areas. Our research has shown a significant increase in precipitation activity just after cutting and extending into the days following that cutting with some storms severe in nature. These storms can and will bring serious rainfall to any Bermuda grass field that has fresh hay one the ground. When these storms take place, and they will, take cover and lock yourself in the basement, would be best to emerge in about 5 days and verify that is still raining and go back in to basement for another stint, by now the grass should be fairly well beaten into the ground at which point you can opt to Ted or burn, You could Ted but in a few more days You will have wished You woulda burnt it up, cause On day 14 the grass is growing through the stems that are still left on the field, the good news is the long term forecast calls for clearing skies in exactly 9 more days......wonder if army worms can swim?
