Do You Know What the Top Four Crops Around Lubbock Are?
I found this a bit interesting and thought you might, too. Before you click through, what do you think the answer is? I would have guessed two of these, but the other two probably would have taken multiple guesses.
According to the Lubbock Chamber of Commerce, the top four crops are: Corn, Cotton, Grain Sorghum and Peanuts. (I'm thinking this list was alphabetical to avoid stepping on toes).
We all know that cotton is king around here, and I also know about Sorghum, but it's been a minute since I've driven past a cornfield anywhere around here. I also guess that I wouldn't know a field of peanuts if I drove past it either.
I have a lot of respect for the farmers around here after spending a summer hoeing and "trompin" cotton. It's a lot of long, long days and nights, all which can be obliterated by one storm or a patch of inclement weather.
