County, row crops were being chopped and harvested rapidly.  Almost all 
fields have been harvested and were being fertilized and tilled.  In 
other areas, winter small grains including wheat were being harvested for 
silage as well as cut, dried, and baled.  Fields were being fertilized, 
cultivated for weeds, and tilled for corn, sorghum, and cotton planting.  
With favorable warm to hot weather conditions, crops in the greater 
valley were doing well.  Hay is reported FOB the stack or barn unless
