With temperatures rising and ice and snow melting, Michigan’s fruit farmers are finally able to start assessing winter damage in their orchards, fields and vineyards. Between heavy snows, hungry varmints and the bitter, unrelenting cold, many of the state’s fruit trees, bushes and vines found the winter of 2013-14 as rough as the rest of us.
To no one’s surprise, farmers will be planting Michigan’s big-acreage row crops a bit later than normal this year. Their rites of spring will have to race through a compressed schedule as soon as conditions allow—meaning as soon as some sun, wind and warmth make the fields firm enough to work up. Below-normal temperatures also have farmers sidelined, but with technology on their side, nobody’s yet sounding the alarm.
