Cotton and peanut farmers in Alabama's Wiregrass region are hoping for rain to boost their yields.

Agronomist Brandon Dillard told The Dothan Eagle that farmers have already lost some of their crop to dry conditions. He said more losses are possible unless there is more rain.

Federal meteorologists have classified the Wiregrass as "abnormally dry." Part of Henry County is considered in a moderate drought.
