Reports on how crops are looking keep trickling in as harvest season moves along and Blueberries look significantly down due to the drought. AgNet West’s Taylor Hillman has more.
Blueberry harvest reports are showing the crop is down a significant percentage from last year. California Blueberry Commission Executive Director Alex Ott says the drought has made a big impact. Blueberries are not native to California and have been modified to be able to grow.
