Crop Damage
Episode Narrative With the unseasonably warm temperatures over the latter half of March, fruit crops across western Wisconsin got an early start on the growing season. Unfortunately, several nights of temperatures near or below the freezing mark throughout the month of April caused considerable damage to these fruit crops. Most of the damage likely occurred from April 10th through the 12th when low temperatures dipped into the middle to upper 20s. It is estimated that apple orchards lost between 20 and 100 percent of the crop, pears and plums were hit hard, some tart cherry orchards had losses up to 80 percent, and the first picking of strawberries was completely lost. Exact crop losses will likely not be known until the fall harvest.
Event Narrative Apple orchards across Jackson County estimated only minimal losses, possibly up to 10 percent, from freezing temperatures that occurred after the start of the growing season. Exact crop damage numbers will not be known until the fall harvest.
