Managing for Profit

A great year for crops in central Texas

After suffering through one of their worst droughts ever in 2011, farmers in central Texas are having one of their best crop years in 2012.

John Perryman farms near Moody, Texas—midway between Dallas and Austin.  He grows wheat, grain sorghum, cotton and corn. 

Perryman says his wheat averaged over 60 bushels per acre this year, and he recently harvested what he calls “a record-breaking” sorghum crop that averaged over five-thousand pounds—or about 90 bushels—per acre.

Perryman is now getting ready to start cotton harvest and he says it also looks like an excellent crop.
