Corn farming

In this Oct. 7, 2019 photo, Scott Allen, who runs Pettit Creek Farms in bone-dry Bartow County, Ga., poses for a photo.

Allen says the animals are fine, but the dust is relentless since there's been no significant rain during the past two months. (AP Photo/Jeff Martin) (AP Photo/Jeff Martin)
