State Crop Report A Mixed Bag
It has been a long hot and dry summer that has taken its toll on some crops throughout New York State. The USDA in a report cited by CNYCentral.com says that the expected crop yields for soybeans, oats and dry beans are expected to be higher those for winter wheat and corn for grain are expected to be lower. Locally the crop report has been just as mixed.
According to WKTV.com:
Nick Creszenzo of Crescenzo’s Farm said his sweet corn is the tastiest it has ever been.”The beans grew really good. We have a lot of great beans, cranberry beans. Cucumbers came well, peppers came well. Tomatoes could have been better, but we’re doing ok.”
The WKTV report also stated that while most farmers in the Central New York area were reporting good crop yields and quality it was not a universal condition.
