Strawberry Fields Are Doing Well

The straw­berry crop is still a week or two away from its peak, but area grow­ers say recent weather has been almost per­fect this spring to pro­duce an above-average crop. Grow­ers expect prices to hold at about last year’s lev­els too.

The U.S. Depart­ment of Agri­cul­ture says Ohio farm­ers planted 740 acres of straw­ber­ries in 2012 and har­vested 660 acres.

Offi­cials expect the early crop will be down in yield from last year because last year’s crop was above average.
