G. D. Caammeyer


- Local Representative


Some Alabama potato shippers expected to begin packing and shipping operations the week of May 12,


and most expected to be in operation by May 19. Heavy rain on Thursday, May 8 delayed those who
anticipated digging on May 12 and substantial rainfall again on Thursday and Friday, May 15 and
continued to delay harvesting, packing and shipping.

Although the May rains disrupted packing and shipping plans, they were welcome. The rain of
