House Agriculture Committee Chairman Tom McCall, R-Elberton, said peach farmers, too, are concerned.
“Farmers north of Macon had been preparing a bumper crop and were almost naming their own prices,” McCall said.
Meteorologist Brad Nitz has your early Tuesday evening weather forecast.
Now, those farmers could see fruit freeze overnight, while farmers south of Macon have struggled with not enough cool weather, he said.
Black said it remains to be seen if the state's Vidalia onion crop is impacted by the freeze.
“Onions are a little more resilient,” he said. “I’m not ready to comment on that. We’ll wait and see.”
There’s not much that can be done to help farmers, Black said, except pray for warmer weather.
“We’re going to be joining several groups, there are prayer meetings all over South Georgia,” he said. “We’ll be asking the Lord to protect us.”
