Texas Agriculture sidesteps effects of Hurricane Sandy

By Allison Miles Published: November 7, 2012

Initial concerns that the storm-damaged cotton crops in Virginia and the Carolinas helped boost cotton prices for several days, but the small amount of cotton grown within those regions would have little to no impact on supplies, according to the email.

It's also possible that broiler growers in the Delaware, Maryland and Virginia region might have experienced some losses, the email said. That could mean a rise in prices for Texas growers, although nothing is concrete.

“Overall, the losses are devastating for people in the immediate area of the storm, but will likely have minimal impacts on Texas agriculture,” the email said.

As for the Crossroads, Nunley said the bigger issue was one unrelated to Hurricane Sandy - the fact that El Niqo appears to have fizzled out.

“We had a lot of people around here hoping for a wet winter,” he said. “I think that's our biggest impact.”
