Millington Damaged Crops

Something is killing crops, trees, even weeds and nobody can explain why.

Farmers are scratching their heads and some are worried their crops may be lost to the mysterious plague.

WTF are they spraying on us now? The obvious culprit would be Chemtrails as the damage is universal. Any other ideas on how this could happen? they decribe it as Small dots appear to "burn" through leaves
Area affected is along Tipton and Shelby County line
Farmers afraid they may lose their entire crop... food shortage in the futture for us?

Holy crap that hits close to home......

I am in North Georgia and have been doing battle for weeks with my organic garden. Virtually overnight, my garden appeared to have been totally demolished by bugs.....without the appearance of any bugs.

I've had my garden for years, so I generally know how to take care of it. Normally when the bugs start chomping, I see clear evidence of it. Starts off with just a little nibble here and there.....and then I spray a fish oil mixture to scare them off. Always worked like a charm until this year when all of my leafy greens have been attacked. Visually, they've got dozens of tiny holes in every leaf.

I'm at work so I can't take pictures, but dang, this is a story to keep up with. Thanks for posting!

you should return with some pictures... And maybe someone out there is able to take these finds to some research-facility to determine wether the cause is natural or some toxic stuff falling from the sky... It sure looks like it came accompanied with rain...

albeit a very mild rainfall... if this would have happened in the netherlands yesterday there wouldn't be anything green left (provided this happened because of stuff in the rain)

I live in a previous flood zone area and for 5 years after the last flood we had that everywhere!
The type we had here was spread by a fungus and it hit everything here in the same way it is doing there. It is spread by wind,rain and fog. Hence the appearance of "drop" like holes. It has no preference it hit everything over and over!
They need to look into using a fungal treatment and see if it gets rid of it. It did here but getting everyone to do it was an uphill battle due to the expense.( why it took so long to get rid of it all actually)

This past year we got another out break of it and lost almost all of our outdoor plants and our entire winter garden. The trees took such a terrible hit that they have dead spots all over them.
We are now going to have to trim off about 30%+ of the tree on each one. Our willow is going to look like a bonsai tree by the time we get all the dead zones off!
We are putting the green houses back up and taking out the soil that was there last year and yet again replacing it ALL. It is costly; but to have fresh veggies etc we can afford for our kids is well worth it. By far cheaper than buying them at the store still.

Sounds like fungus from flood damage. Millington was underwater a few months back. I remember reading that the Navy base had to be evacuated.
