Warm Weather's Effect on Our Crops
Although it may feel like winter now, that hasn't been the story for most of this month.
Wednesday marked the eighth day in a row of temperatures over 80 degrees.
With temperatures that high, we wanted to know if the unseasonably warm conditions have been detrimental to our crops.
Local experts say local crops should be alright for now, just as long as conditions start to improve.
"Mother nature is throwing us some twists right now, for most of the viewing area we like this warm weather, but in certain crops, it could cause havoc down the road."- (Frankie Hall, Florida Farm Bureau)
Hall says he is most concerned with how blooming blueberries in our area would handle a large drop in temperature.
