Farm manager praises defoliation results, harvest weather

Harvest crews provided masks and hand sanitizer to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Jeff Lorah manages more than 6,000 acres of cotton and more than 3,000 acres of wheat for Robbie Robbins near Altus, Okla. Farm Press caught up with Lorah before he headed to the field for cotton harvest.
