Georgia field crop production entails agronomic considerations that lead to a typical system that includes cotton, peanuts and corn as rotation crops. Financial analysis of Georgia field crops indicates the importance of government programs to support farm income. Current legislation permits double-cropping of Georgia fruits and vegetables on base commodity program acreage with no reduction in direct and counter-cyclical payments.
