Heavy Rain Worries Farmers

Sponsored by:

A week of pounding rain at lower elevations and lots of falling snow in the high country is causing some concern for Valley growers.

Almond trees are begining to bloom down the hill in the Valley and rain during the bloom may affect the summer harvest. Farmers say outbursts of heavy rain have knocked the blossoms off of some trees.

But farmers say a greater concern is that rain and cool weather my discourage bees from pollinating almond trees.
