Yakima Valley Weather Delaying Crops
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.
