Yakima Valley Weather Delaying Crops

Flickr, The Library of Congress

The rain this year is affecting many of the crops in the valley and that means some of the produce will be late, reports KIMA-tv.

The cherry crop has suffered and the asparagus is now suffering too with KIMA-tv reporting the crop loads are smaller for the farmers.

KIMA-tv says it is cooler temperatures and too much water in the soil creating the problem and local farmers saying hotter temperatures are better in not delaying the produce.

KIMA -tv also reports that even though most of the produce will be late this year, the leafy green vegetables and mustard greens are having a good season because of the wet weather.
