Looking across one of his smaller tobacco fields, Dwain Brockman says 2010 will be a positive year for him.
"Our yield, for the most part, is going to be good," he said.
In fact, Brockman said, about 110 of his 130 acres of tobacco will produce a good yield.
Overall, tobacco yield in Taylor County will likely be average, says Pat Hardesty, Taylor County Extension agent for agriculture and natural resources, despite some of the hardships tobacco growers have endured. Still, with many just beginning to cut tobacco last week, it's too early to tell.
