Dog Days Good Days For Local Farmers

May 13, 2005--Posted 4:00 pm CDT


Craighead Co.--According to Marshall Morrison, owner of Morrison Aviation, farmers are using good weather to put in long hours in their fields.  Morrison is a local crop duster whose airstrip is located just east of Cash.  He says he is noticing a drastic increase in jobs he is being called to do.


“We will be busy from now until July fourth.”  Morrison said.  Morrison says much of his time in the air right now is being spent fertilizing fields.  Adding that most years he would be dropping more pesticide and less fertilizer at this time, but that this year’s heavy April rains pushed back planting for several farmers.
