WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WISH) - Winter and spring's cooler temperatures turned out to be a plus for specialty crops, according to Purdue University horticulture specialists.
Field experts say last year, plants developed a lot earlier due to warm temperatures prior to drought conditions and a late freeze. Many crops such as fruit trees, grapes and berries will benefit from the cooler temperatures this year.
Purdue horticulture professor Peter Hirst says temperatures below 40 degrees in early spring are ideal for crop development.
Although this is true, experts say it is still too early to know exactly how they will recover from last year's drought.
