Grape Farmers Have To Pick Up The Pace In Warm Weather

Sacramento, CA — In California´s vineyards, grape growers appreciate the pleasant weather as they prune their vines in preparation for the new season.

But the farmers have had to work more quickly, because buds are already starting to swell in some vines.

Farmers say they expect a lighter crop this year because of rains last June. That´s the time when vines set grape clusters for the following season, and the lack of sunlight caused fewer clusters to form.
