Farmers keeping an eye on fruit crops | News
Farmers are keeping a close eye on their fruit crops Monday morning after low temps this weekend.
At Schutt's Farm in Webster, owner Martin Schutt said this year's crop is pretty much devastated.
He says the warm weather at the beginning of March caused the buds to develop prematurely. That combined with the hard freezes have caused as much as 90-percent of apples, peaches, cherries and raspberries in the area to be destroyed.
That could mean a rise in prices at the grocery store later this year.
