Farmers who can irrigate are likely to fare somewhat better, particularly with the higher commodity prices nationwide, according to Billy Skaggs. Skaggs, who filled in for an ailing Georgia Agriculture Commissioner Gary Black also discussed a report on farm labor shortages his department is preparing for Georgia Gov.
